Parents, We need to talk!
Since the legalization of Recreational Marijuana Use for Adults 21 and over in 2014, It’s become more important than ever for youth and families to have accurate information that helps them make healthy choices. Big Village is a coalition of diverse stakeholders working together to reduce substance use and high-risk drinking among youth and young adults.
We’re passionate about making Portland an even better place for our youth as we engage the community to identify substance abuse problems and solutions. We foster creativity and innovation while remaining grounded in evidence-based approaches.
Come join us on June 26th from 5:30 PM- 8:30 PM for a Free Dinner and skill-building workshops to learn more.
