Spread the Word


Take a selfie and tag it #ProtectUrSelfie to show your support and commitment to the pledge!


  • Because it is illegal and dangerous, I pledge not to drink alcohol before age 21 or use other drugs.
  • I pledge not to ride with someone who has been drinking alcohol.
  • If I find myself in a situation where I feel unsafe or uncomfortable, I pledge to call an adult for a safe ride home.
