Register today for Prevention Policy Day 2012

At this yearly event, youth and professionals gather together to rally at the Capitol in Olympia and meet with individual lawmakers in support of prevention policy. It is an opportunity to share views on future priorities relating to the health and safety of youth. In addition, youth leadership groups can talk about what is happening in local communities around the state.
