Free, on demand training for coalition members

CADCA provides many free resource for community coalitions.  One of them is a one-hour broadcast that may be viewed on demand: Understanding Your Influence.

Coalition members can have far-reaching influence in their communities. Working to change laws, regulations, ordinances, and policies is frequently involved.  Policy change is often the fastest way to see population-level impacts and enhance drug-free environments for youth and families. 

During the webcast, participants will learn:

  • how coalitions can use the power they have to create positive change in their communities. 
  • what coalitions can and can’t do as far as advocacy and lobbying are concerned. 
  • how changes to laws and policies can improve enforcement, reduce access and availability of alcohol, tobacco and other drugs, and increase social disapproval of drug use.
