SAFE-MA Honors Leaders & Advocates for Alcohol Ad Ban Victory


Supporting an Alcohol Ad-Free Environment in Massachusetts (SAFE-MA) sponsored a celebration this week to honor State Secretary of Transportation Richard Davey, former Governor Michael Dukakis and his wife Kitty, and the Allston-Brighton Substance Abuse Task Force youth coalition for their roles in banning alcohol advertisements from public transit. The SAFE-MA collaborative worked for years to ban alcohol advertisements from the MBTA, and their efforts succeeded with a ban that took effect in July 2012. In the coming year, AJ will continue working with SAFE-MA to pass a ban on alcohol ads on all state property in Massachusetts. Click here for more information on alcohol advertising on public transit.
