Alcohol is the 2nd leading cause of premature death and disability in LA County. Misuse and abuse of alcohol, over-the-counter medications, and illicit drugs affect the health and well-being of San Gabriel Valley residents.
Prevention Art Real Talk (PART) Project was created by the RAD coalition to raise awareness about alcohol-and-other-drug-related harms in the San Gabriel Valley.
For this project, RAD we are calling for artists to design creative prevention art and messaging.
The goal of the PART Project is to raise awareness through the placement of creative prevention messaging in public spaces.
Submit your design, and Be a PART of Change!
