NEWSLETTER: IN THE LOOP / OCTOBER
Winner of multiple international film awards, this five-minute film sensitively addresses adult behaviors toward alcohol and their impact on our kids, our communities and ourselves. It gently urges adults to reflect on their attitudes toward alcohol and empowers them to take action. Please share: children are our future.
