More than 120 people joined us on November 17, 2020 for Fireside Project’s inaugural launch panel, which explored topics such as why there is an urgent need for remote psychedelic peer support, the benefits of the psychedelic peer support line to the psychedelic movement as a whole, and the role Fireside Project will play in creating a more inclusive psychedelic movement.

Our esteemed panelists were:

-California State Senator Scott Wiener, who, on November 10, 2020, made the historic announcement that he will be introducing a bill to decriminalize and regulate psychedelics in California
-Rick Doblin, PhD: the founder and executive director of the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies
-Dr. Julie Holland: psychopharmacologist, psychiatrist, and best-selling author of five books, including, most recently, “Good Chemistry: The Science of Connection, from Soul to Psychedelics”
-Brad Burge: Founder of Integration Communications, former Director of Strategic Communications at MAPS
