It’s June! Thanks to the additional funding from Partnerships for Success (PFS) grant, we have been able to add the social norms campaign onto the CTA trains (red and orange lines) and buses from the Kedzie Station, including the #8, #22, and #62.
We have also distributed the last edition of the tobacco posters in the community!

National Prevention Week is an annual health observance that is taking place this week (May 17-23, 2015). The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) created this event to increase public awareness and action around substance abuse and mental health issues. This year’s theme is “The Voice of One, the Power of All” aiming to connect communities to help individuals live healthier lives.
We will be visiting various high schools (Whitney Young Magnet High School, Thomas Kelly High School, and William Jones College Prep) in the area teaching students about alcohol prevention. During this time, we are launching the #CASAPcontest for students to win prizes, such as giftcards and an iPod. Students are entered to win once they submit a selfie on Instagram with an official poster or palmcard using the hashtags #standtogether and #CASAPcontest. The official rules may be found www.casapil.com/casapcontest.
To take part in the social conversation on Facebook or Twitter, use the hashtags: #voiceforprevention and #npw2015.
World No Tobacco Day, an annual day highlighting the health risks associated with tobacco use and advocating for policies to reduce tobacco consumption, is marked on Sunday, May 31. This year, the World Health Organization (WHO) is calling on countries to work together to end the illicit trade of tobacco products. In the City of Chicago (and the State of Illinois) is cracking down on these illegal sales with the Check the Stamps campaign. Sales of the cheap, readily available and illegal cigarettes make it easier for children to start and harder to quit. Report illegal sales in your community at checkthestamps.org.
To promote World No Tobacco Day this year, we are hosting our annual Chinatown Square clean-up event on May 29 (3-5 PM). Please register at http://www.tinyurl.com/chinatowncleanup. For groups of 10+, please call 312.372.7070 EXT 228 for more information.
