On Thursday, April 23, 2015, from 4:30-7:30pm, volunteers from the Evanston Substance Abuse Prevention Coalition and the Evanston Police and Community Partnership will collaborate on an Illinois Liquor Control Commission effort called “Your Actions Matter” to help keep alcohol out of the hands for those under 21 years of age. While we know that a majority of our community’s liquor establishments are selling and serving responsibly, we are also aware that friends and family members are the primary sources where youth obtain alcohol. Youth and community members can play a key role by sending a reminder to adults to “think, decide, prevent” before purchasing alcohol for underage consumption. With this in mind, we are asking you to join our community partnership to help reduce youth access to alcohol.
If you are able to volunteer, please contact Karen Finstad, Coalition Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org
