  2. 2. 6/13/11   Our recommendation: Develop a campaign to reduce alcohol advertising that targets the NFO community.Themes - community conversations:•  Need more and better prevention marketing and messaging – in appropriate languages.•  Concern about targeting of the NFO community with this type of advertising.Action: Shared with NFO general plan steeringcommittee and Koshland fellows.

Educate merchants.Themes - community conversations:•  Shocked that these exist – and by % alcohol, raised awareness.•  Concerned about teens being targeted•  Interested in merchant education. 2  
  3. 3. 6/13/11   Our recommendation: Improve safety and reduce alcohol and drug use in local parks.Themes - community conversations:•  Noted that it is accepted as “normal” that adults/ teens smoke and drink in parks.•  Think drinking and smoking in parks gives mixed messages to children (related to health and play.)

No problem! •  Alcopops? Had no idea •  Once you look – you start to notice more and more •  The information we have to share really does help people What did we learn? 4
