Community Anti-Drug Coalitions of American (CADCA)
CADCA’s mission is to build and strengthen the capacity of community coalitions to create safe, healthy, and drug-free communities. The organization supports its members with technical assistance and training, public policy, media strategies, and marketing programs, conferences, and special events. The Alliance for Wisconsin Youth is a state-level sustaining member of CADCA. As a benefit of Alliance for Wisconsin Youth membership, CADCA provides the following information to local Alliance for Wisconsin Youth members (if email addresses are current):
- Legislative action alerts and updates to keep coalitions involved in time-sensitive legislative issues and informed of congressional action and results of national public policy efforts.
- An e-newsletter providing the latest news, trends, and tips to develop and maintain successful local anti-drug coalitions as well as information on funding opportunities, conferences, other alcohol, tobacco and other drugs of abuse prevention related activities and publications.
Local Alliance for Wisconsin Youth member coalitions must join CADCA directly to be considered a CADCA member.
