on Alcohol & Teens (AAT)

http://www.winternet.com/~martinez/index.html

This network of Minnesota citizens works to reduce youth access to alcohol.

AAT is seeking to change state and local policies that would hold both

merchants and other adults accountable for selling or giving alcohol to

underage persons. The web site includes information about the program

and its strategies, and includes a compilation of fact sheets and resources

on youth access to alcohol.

The

Century Council

http://www.centurycouncil.org/

The Century Council supports a variety of initiatives that advance strategies

to reduce underage drinking and youth access to alcohol. The Council’s

web site has pages devoted to enforcement efforts, such as Cops In Shops

and the Front Lines program (promotional materials for minimum purchase

age awareness and enforcement). The site further describes the Council’s

involvement in efforts to pass zero tolerance laws and legislation allowing

administrative license revocation for the prevention of impaired driving.

Educational programs for parents, teens, and college students are also

featured at this web site.

FACE:

Truth and Clarity about Alcohol

http://faceproject.org/

The FACE (Facing Alcohol Concerns through Education) web site describes

the organization’s focus on media development, training, and advocacy.

Links to the product catalog and order form provide access to videos,

commercials, outdoor advertising, and print materials that address the

health and safety risks associated with alcohol. These media, and FACE

training sessions as well, may be of particular interest to those working

in the area of community norms.

University

of Minnesota Alcohol Epidemiology Program

http://epihub.epi.umn.edu/alcohol/default.htp

Epidemiology Program, including focal points of ongoing research and sources

of funding. The major content includes separate sections on alcohol policy

reviews, ordinances and legislation; compliance checks; and research.

The material on policies and legislation addresses many of the strategies

for reducing underage alcohol use.
