Oregon Partnership will be among those conducting workshops next week at … get ready now….The Office of Juvenile Justice Delinquency Prevention Underage Drinking Enforcement Center’s 9th Annual National Leadership Conference. A serious mouthful.
For those who have attended, it’s regarded as the premiere underage drinking conference in the country. And folks all over the country share successes and failures and take up cutting-edge efforts to make a dent in the underage drinking crisis.
The conference’s slogan is “Empowering Leadership to Enhance What Works.”
OP’s Judy Cushing and yours truly will explain how a lil ol non-profit in Portland, Oregon can help get major retail chains to stop selling products that promote alcohol to minors, and to be among the leaders in the successful campaign to get Anheuser-Busch to stop selling Spykes.
And the media attention on addictions continues non-stop: Time Magazine’s cover story this week. Changing the culture. It’s starting to happen.
More from Orlando later.
