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!
