CAPA 2016 Youth Advocacy Day - In support of AB 1554

3/29 - CAPA 2016 Youth Advocacy Day - In Support of AB 1554 - To Ban Powdered Alcohol in California

The California Alcohol Policy Alliance hosted the 1st Youth Advocacy Day with 35 youth from the bay area!

A youth and adult led Advocacy training was held at the USC Capitol Center. The group then marched over to the capitol to meet with every Assembly Member Office.

Every young person in attendance is working on reducing alcohol abuse in his or her community. They were all empowered to walk the halls of the Capitol representing their community to create change!

"Being able to connect with legislative staff and share the issues regarding the glamorization of alcohol, and the over-abundance of youth friendly substances was an empowering experience!" Said Karen Andrade, 16, a student at Tennyson High School in Hayward, CA. "I have learned the power that youth have to create change and the importance of civic engagement."

You too can be heard on this important issue:
