The goal of the Community Laws and Norms Workgroup is to increase the percentage of teens who believe that adults in their community DO NOT approve of youth drinking alcohol. Workgroup strategies include: 
  • Reminding retailers that they should be asking young people for id and rewarding those who do, and conducting compliance checks (with legal sanctions) to ensure that retailers do not sell alcohol to minors. 
  • Providing alcohol beverage server training to retailers. 
  • Raising awareness that adults should not buy alcohol for minors. 
  • Advocating for changes in town ordinances to reduce youth access to alcohol. 

The Laws and Norm Workgroup meets the first Thursday of every month from 1-2pm at the CCT Resource Library, Suite 411, 425 Main Street in Greenfield.
