Why Debate the Irrefutable? 21 Saves Lives.
By MADD | April 24, 2014

A mountain of research is on the side of age 21. Seventy-eight percent of Americans are on the side of 21. And MADD is proud that we helped pass and continue to protect 21 as the Minimum Drinking Age Law.

We are thrilled to partner with the Orange County Partnership for Alcohol and Drug Free Youth and SAMSHA to host a Town Hall Meeting to talk about the dangers of underage drinking and how we can save our youth.  The meeting will be followed by a free Power of Parents workshop sponsored by Nationwide and the Governor’s Highway Safety program.  Each parent will receive a free handbook filled with tips and tools to help you start the potentially lifesaving conversation about alcohol with your teens.

WHEN: 5:30 PM, April 21, 2014

WHERE:   Orange County Library, 137 W Margaret Ln, Hillsborough, NC

WHY: About 4,700 people die each year as a result of underage drinking — more than all other illegal drugs combined. PowerTalk 21 is a day for parents to start talking with their kids about alcohol in order to prevent underage drinking and its many associated dangers.
