Rhode Island Social Host Awareness Campaign
This social media toolkit is intended for use by Rhode Island partners who are interested in engaging with the 2021 Rhode Island Social Host Law Awareness Campaign, developed by JSI Research and Training Institute, Inc., on behalf of six of the Rhode Island Prevention Coalitions (Regions 1, 2, 4, 5, 6, and 7).
Rhode Island Regional Prevention Coalitions are partnerships comprised of dedicated members and partners working together to provide substance use prevention strategies, mental health resources, and advocate for policies that support healthy and safe communities. We are youth, parents, elected officials, health care providers, faith leaders, local businesses, law enforcement, educational leaders, youth-serving organizations, and treatment providers. Seven Regional coalitions connect 36 local coalitions across the state.
The social media toolkit includes tips for success, sample messages, and images that will support partner communication of the Rhode Island Social Host Law. You also can download a zipped collection of shareable social media images.
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.
