THE CHURCH OF SCIENTOLOGY ACTIVE IN THE COMMUNITY



T

he Church of Scientology and its members are committed to social betterment – in the local neighborhood, the nation or in the world as a whole. The tools employed are those acquired from study of L. Ron Hubbard’s works, including his drug rehabilitation technology, his effective study methods, his essays on safeguarding the environment and, perhaps most important, the immense compassion for others that pervades everything he wrote.

ANTI-DRUG CAMPAIGNS

In support of its international grass-roots fight against drugs, the Church of Scientology unites concerned community groups and stages public awareness forums, anti-drug rallies and educational conferences.

In the United States, for instance, Church-sponsored anti-drug campaigns have helped millions of people by fighting further drug proliferation. It has done so through enlisting the aid of celebrities for concerts with anti-drug themes; by raising funds for youth groups such as the Police Activities League, which provides tutorial services for disadvantaged youth; and by hosting conferences of community leaders involved in anti-drug activities, such as that in Washington, DC, which led city commissioner Bob King to present the Church’s local “Lead the Way to a Drug-Free USA” program with a proclamation lauding its efforts in the war against drugs.
