Youth Substance Abuse Prevention Day on the Hill, Virtual Press Conference
We are planning a Virtual Press Conference for the same time we had scheduled our Day on the Hill at the Capitol in Des Moines. A few youth and adults will be presenting their stories related to alcohol use, youth vaping and THC. You will not want to miss this!
We have decided to not meet in person for any part of that day, but will be providing a Day on the Hill Toolkit that includes a pre-recorded youth training to use with your youth prior to the press conference.
The press conference will be held live via Zoom, but will also be recorded. We are encouraging youth groups and coalitions to still try to meet with your legislators via Zoom or another virtual meeting platform. Please let us know if you need help locating your local state legislators or setting up a meeting with them.
Our goal is that all groups have met with their legislators either before or a week after the Press Conference by March 5th and then can report back your success to us about how many attended youth trainings and how many coalitions had meetings with legislators. Please invite you legislators to the live Press Conference. You will also be able to share the recording with them after.
Register for the Press Conference HERE. An updated toolkit will be available soon as well
