Unscramble the Blue Letters

Repealing a law isn't easy, and it's particularly difficult when it rteaels to touchy subjects like drugs and sex. But there's plenty you can do while that process is underway. One of the key points is to reform the police so that they have better practices on the gnorud. So for example, outreach wkeorrs who are drtbiisintug condoms to vulnerable populations are not themselves subject to police harassment or abuse or arbitrary arrest. We can also tairn judges so that they find flexibilities in the law and so that they rule on the side of tnaecorle rather than puiedjcre. We can retool prisons so that HIV prevention and harm reduction is available to prisoners.

Original Text

Repealing a law isn't easy, and it's particularly difficult when it relates to touchy subjects like drugs and sex. But there's plenty you can do while that process is underway. One of the key points is to reform the police so that they have better practices on the ground. So for example, outreach workers who are distributing condoms to vulnerable populations are not themselves subject to police harassment or abuse or arbitrary arrest. We can also train judges so that they find flexibilities in the law and so that they rule on the side of tolerance rather than prejudice. We can retool prisons so that HIV prevention and harm reduction is available to prisoners.
