PRC Joins Social Media with Underage Drinking Initiative

The Children's Aid Society NYC Prevention Resource Center launched its first social media page with the introduction of a new campaign designed to bring together parents, youth, schools, business owners, and others to prevent underage drinking by stopping the illegal sale of alcohol to youth.

United-We-Stand partners community members, local store owners, and teens to stop minors under 21 from illegally obtaining alcohol from grocery stores and reduce the over-promotion of alcohol advertising found in many lower and middle class inner city neighborhoods.

Residents can participate in a series of adult and youth led activities designed to raise awareness about the issue of underage drinking, curb the problem of easy access to liquor at grocery and convenience stores; and limit the amount of indoor and outdoor alcohol advertising.

United-We-Stand also spotlights caring and responsible merchants working to keep neighborhoods safe and healthy places to work and live.
