Join Milwaukee’s prevention community in celebrating Light and Unite Red Week January 22-27 in conjunction with National Drug and Alcohol Facts Week as we engage youth and parents in prevention, encourage treatment, and support recovery.
“Although we’ve taken on a big, community-wide challenge, we’re always focused on how our programs and partners are impacting the daily lives of individuals,” said Public Policy Institute Deputy Director Kari Lerch.
“We wanted to recognize our outstanding leaders and provide the time and space for all of our members to get to know each other a little better,” said MCSAP Coordinator Kasaundra Brown. “It’s been a privilege to know them and support their work.”
“Having concrete evidence of what we have suspected -- that tobacco companies prey on communities of color and youth -- is a rallying call for us all to take action. We can no longer accept what we cannot change. We must change what we cannot accept,” said Anneke Mohr, City of Milwaukee Tobacco-Free Alliance Coordinator.
