Rhode Island Social Host Law Campaign
Rhode Island Regional Coalitions, 2021
The Rhode Island Regional Coalitions have partnered with JSI to establish a Social Host Law Campaign through the Partnerships for Success grant provided to the Regional Coalitions by BHDDH. The campaign aims to educate and inform Rhode Island residents about the Social Host Law, which states it is illegal to buy, provide, supply alcohol, or provide a place to consume alcohol to anyone under the age of 21. The campaign also raises awareness of the health and social consequences of underage drinking, including impacting brain development and decision making skills. Rhode Island partners who are interested in engaging with the Social Host Law Awareness Campaign can learn more about tips for success, sample messages, and images that will support partner communication of the Rhode Island Social Host Law social through the accompanying social media toolkit which can be accessed here.
