There's an exciting movement in California to fight for reducing alcohol harm.

California Alcohol Policy Alliance
unites dozens of organizations to reform our state's alcohol policies. This year, we blocked a bill that would have extended alcohol serving hours to 4 a.m. in nine California cities, including five of the ten largest. In 2017, we stopped a similar bill in committee. 2016 saw us pass two bills to ban powdered alcohol and keep it off California's shelves and streets. We are also calling for changes in ABC and beyond that will positively impact our communities. Join us and take action.

Look back on our successes from the past year, and look ahead to we can do in 2020!
