CADCA National Leadership Forum

February 3, 2020 – February 6, 2020 all-day
Washington, D.C.

Members of SRSLY’s Youth Leadership are invited to attend CADCA’s National Leadership Forum in Washington, D.C. NLF is held every February and is the premier and largest training event for community-based substance abuse prevention professionals, coalition leaders, and prevention and addiction researchers. NLF is a three-day event packed with opportunities to learn the latest strategies to fight substance abuse and hear from nationally-known prevention experts, federal administrators, and concerned policymakers. The Forum brings together over 3,000 participants representing coalitions from all regions of the country and internationally, government leaders, youth, prevention specialists, addiction treatment professionals, addiction recovery advocates, researchers, education institutions, law enforcement professionals, and faith-based leaders. Students have the opportunity to participate in CADCA’s youth trainings and spend a day at Capitol Hill talking to their local representatives about prevention work.
