March Northside Urban Coalition

The Northside Urban Coalition is a Drug Free Communities project of the Hawthorne Neighborhood Council’s Health & Well-being initiative. NSUC is focused on preventing youth substance use in North Minneapolis and educates them to build trust in authority, live stress free and maintain a safe living and working environment.

The Northside Urban Coalition project will address:
Opioids use
Marijuana awareness
Underage smoking
Underage drinking

Professionals and Community partners will discuss vaping and why people do vs those who don’t vape. We will also explore the underage smoking increase.
