San Mateo County AOD Partnerships Quarterly Meeting in East Palo Alto 8-21-2014

NCPP staff attended the quarterly meeting of the San Mateo County funded Alcohol & Other Drug (AOD) partnerships yesterday to discuss and brainstorm the adoption of an alcohol retail signage campaign initiated by the Drug-Free Communities funded Saving Lives Coalition from Southern California.  Representatives from the San Mateo AOD partnerships weighed in about adding additional languages and tailoring the sign’s messaging and format to suit the communities we serve in San Mateo County.  This is the start of a great effort to improve communication and relationships with alcohol merchants to prevent youth access to alcohol at the retail level.

A huge THANK YOU to everyone who planned, volunteered, attended, enjoyed, or learned something at our Town Hall Meeting for Daly City & Pacifica last night! We couldn’t have asked for a better turnout! The event went really smoothly, and the guest speakers did an excellent job discussing the topic. During our Q&A session, community members and parents were passionate about sharing their voices about the harmful norms around alcohol consumption. Participants then engaged in small group activities to answer particular questions about the consequences of alcohol use, and then shared some of their brainstormed ideas with the larger group. We plan to develop next steps using these ideas, and will be holding another follow-up Town Hall event in Daly City & Pacifica in a few months. We are also in the early planning stages of having a Town Hall event in South San Francisco to engage residents of that community as well.

Extra special thank you to our esteemed panelists, and our local advocate in the Office of National Drug Control Policy, Mr. David Mineta!

After over a year of planning and coordination, NCPP was proud to host our Communities Mobilizing for Change on Alcohol (CMCA) Day 1-2 training for our Drug-Free Communities coalition in South San Francisco.  Facilitated by Brenda Armstrong of Santa Cruz County Friday Night Live (FNL) and Community United to Reduce Bingeing (CURB), the CMCA training provided a framework to address issues in the community around alcohol by utilizing principles of community organizing and the public health model.  Over 20 participants from various organizations attended the two day training, held at the South San Francisco Municipal building, as provided in support by our coalition partners from South San Francisco Park & Rec.  Trainees spanned the gamut from South San Francisco residents, college students, prevention professionals, San Mateo County staff from Alcohol/Other Drug/Tobacco/Nutrition departments, and even representatives of the individual organizations of Asian Youth Prevention Services (AYPS) in San Francisco.

As a team, our “homework” after receiving this first round of training is to interview over 100+ members of the South San Francisco community on their views.  We will be developing our list of leads & contacts, finalizing our interview template, and coordinating with our training participants on this “one-on-one” process.  Stay tuned in the coming months for the initial findings of this research.

The next round of CMCA trainings (Day 3-4) is planned for March 2014.  Won’t you join us and be part of the movement to make South San Francisco a safer and healthier place?
