"Shatter the Myths" Campaign - January 2018
To “shatter the myths” surrounding drugs and alcohol, the McKinley Park Underage Drinking and Other Substances Prevention Coalition (McK-UDOS) participated in National Drug and Alcohol Fact Week. This educational initiative, established by the National Institute on Drug Abuse in 2010, counteracts myths surrounding alcohol and drugs that teens receive from the media, popular culture or from friends. As part of the national effort, McK-UDOS has launched a community awareness and education campaign that is linguistically competent for Spanish- and Chinese-speaking households in McKinley Park.
Below are the campaign materials that were distributed during the campaign. If you would like copies or would like more information, please contact Vernalynne De La Rosa at email@example.com
