Campaign targets underage drinking

Volunteers from the Evanston Substance  Abuse Prevention Coalition (ESAP) will be visiting bars in Evanston next week to enlist their help in preventing underage drinking.

The campaign, dubbed “Your Actions Matter,” is hoping to remind patrons of these establishments to “think, decide, prevent” before purchasing alcohol for underage consumption.

The ESAP Coalition’s mission is to increase the health of Evanston youth by preventing alcohol, tobacco, and other drug use through community-level strategies. 

The "YOUR ACTIONS MATTER!" Alcohol Awareness campaign's mission is to remind businesses of the risks involved with selling alcohol to minors and patrons of the risks involved with purchasing alcohol on their behalf.
