All are invited to this amazing event- The 8th Annual Courage to Speak Empowering Youth to be Drug Free Family Night
On March 20th at 5:15 pm at West Rocks Middle School, 81 West Rocks Rd., in Norwalk, CT. Students, parents, educators, school and government officials, business and community leaders come together to affirm their commitment to keep our children safe from drugs and other risky behaviors. A complimentary dinner will be served.
This Drug Free Family Night spotlights the outstanding work and words of students who participate in the Courage to Speak Foundation’s programs/curricula and inspire every person in attendance to have a drug free family. Norwalk’s Mayor Richard Moccia, Chief of Police Harry Rilling and Assistant Superintendent of Schools Tony Daddona will introduce the students who take the microphone and speak out with their vows not to use drugs. State Representative Lawrence F. Cafero, Jr. will serve as Master of Ceremonies.
“Bringing students and parents together to talk openly and honestly about the dangers of drugs is the most important goal of Drug Free Family Night,” stated Ms. Katz. “By helping our students become outstanding anti-drug advocates and mentors for their friends and younger siblings, we hope to eradicate the problem of drug and alcohol use among young people in CT and across the country.”
