#GivingTuesday - Join With Us!

Dear Friends and Allies,

#GivingTuesday—the global day of giving—is one week away!

It has been a notably rough year for me, for you and the world. Even while I work with my kids being at home doing school, and practically living on Zoom calls, I am so proud of the work of our Alcohol Justice staff, Board Directors and allied organizations this year.

In 2021, Alcohol Justice will celebrate 34 years of taking action against an industry that preys upon the disadvantaged, the marginalized, and those too young to see beyond the seductive marketing of truly dangerous products. We do this by watchdogging Big Alcohol, forming coalitions of concern, and taking decisive actions to place the health and safety of our communities above industry profits. 

On December 1, 2020, we ask for your help in supporting our important work. Requesting a contribution on #GivingTuesday is a timely way to launch a season of giving that will empower our efforts into the new year. Please consider helping us continue this movement towards social justice in public health.

Here how:

1) On December 1, make a charitable gift through the Alcohol Justice Donation Page

2) Learn more about the campaigns and projects of Alcohol Justice:

3) Sign-up for Alcohol Justice eNews and Action Alerts

4) Follow and friend Alcohol Justice on our social media platforms:

Please join with us on  #GivingTuesday. Together, we will continue to hold accountable this industry that damages public health while diminishing social justice.

Best wishes for a kinder, more equitable, and COVID-free new year,


Bruce Lee Livingston

Executive Director / CEO

Alcohol Justice




Alcopops are heavily flavored, heavily sugared, often high-ABV alcoholic beverages. They are among the most popular first drink for many youth. The Alcopop-Free Zone project used youth representatives to engage the San Rafael Canal community, educate retailers, and get alcopops off of store shelves.

]Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) for opioid use disorder includes bupernorphine among other medications. It offers the best opportunity for people who use opioids to live long, healthy lives, but only if they have access to it. Geographic, economic, and language barriers further complicate individuals' efforts to obtain this life-saving treatment. The MAT Access Project/Proyecto Latino TAM works to educate the Latinx community of Marin on the dangers of opioids, and promote culturally competent MAT services for those who needs it.


Within liquor, grocery, and drug stores, good retail practices can not only make it harder for youth to obtain alcohol, but make youth less interested in drinking. Youth Action for Safe Stores (YASS) develops youth leaders who can evaluate stores' retail practices, engage with business owners, and promote best retail practices throughout San Rafael.
