Dear Concerned Community Leaders and Residents:

The Bobby E. Wright Anti-Substance Abuse Coalition graciously requests your attendance to the coalition’s next regular community meeting.  Your attendance is critical in addressing pressing issues that we are organizing to confront.  Attached is an agenda outlining the following issues to be addressed:  1) Arrangements for a Town Hall Meeting   about “Underage Drinking Prevention” in East/West Garfield Park, 2) Organizing to ensure the community participates in and benefits from the implementation of the 2014 Illinois Youth Survey (IYS) and 3) Strategies for dealing with potential impacts on our community from  the legalization of Medical Marijuana in Illinois this year.  Your input and participation will reflect a maturing community ready to accept responsibility for what effects it and being pro-active in confronting these issues.
