Volunteers from the Washington, D.C. chapter of the Foundation for a Drug-Free World were on hand August 4 at National Night Out events in every D.C. police district with materials anyone can use to help kids make the decision to live drug-free.

National Night out is an annual community-building campaign, now in its 32nd year, sponsored by the National Association of Town Watch. It promotes police-community partnerships aimed at heightening crime and drug prevention awareness and strengthening neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships.

The Foundation for a Drug-Free World publishes a series of 14 illustrated drug information booklets containing facts about the most commonly abused drugs. Easy to understand, and available in 22 languages, this information explains the physical and mental effects of drugs on a person. It tells true stories of people who have used drugs and how they became addicted to them.

Committed to helping youth live drug-free lives, the volunteers set up booths and handed out copies of these booklets, which are part of an entire drug education curriculum in use by law enforcement, schools and community and faith-based groups in 180 nations. They provide the factual information youth need to make the decision to live drug-free.

Volunteers spoke with National Night Out organizers, police officers and concerned members of the community to brief them on this program, which is available free of charge to anyone wishing to use the materials to make a difference in their communities.
