Youth are greatly influenced by the media and pressures to “fit in”. There is a direct correlation between adolescent exposure to promotional alcohol advertising and underage drinking. Reverse the media messages by talking with your child about the harmful effects of underage drinking.
Take a moment to sit down with your child and watch these videos on the realities of alcohol abuse, and the positive effects that saying NO to drinking underage can have on their lives.
WE SHALL REMAIN was created to address the effects of historical trauma in our tribal communities. Many times, these untended wounds are at the core of much of the self-inflicted pain experienced in Native America. Much like fire, this pain can either be devastatingly destructive or wisely harnessed to become fuel that helps us to rise up and move forward in life with joy, purpose and dignity.
