Nashville, TN, July 14, 2018 --(PR.com
)-- “Drugs don’t discriminate,” says Brian Fesler, Regional Coordinator for Drug-Free Tennessee, “They affect people of every race, color, creed, economic status and national origin. Drug-Free Tennessee doesn’t discriminate either. We need everyone to support the efforts of law enforcement by curbing the demand for drugs.”
Drug-Free Tennessee (DFT) is committed to ending the drug problem in the state. That is why each year, volunteers organize and participate in a series of events to bring awareness to this issue and combat usage.
In 2018, DFT volunteers are determined to reach more people than ever. In June, the chapter distributed booklets at festivals, on International Day Against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking, and during other community events. During July and August, even more events are taking place with Drug-Free Tennessee spreading its drug-free message, including working with local law enforcement to share drug-free messages in summer school programs.
“If we can delete the demand, we can erase the problem,” says Fesler. “We need to go to all people, to get everyone this information on the truth about drugs.”
Drug-Free Tennessee is the local chapter of the Foundation for a Drug-Free World, an international nonprofit organization based in Los Angeles, California, with a focus on the elimination of drug and alcohol abuse and its resulting criminality. It distributes the Truth About Drugs booklet, which covers all basic side effects of drugs, common street names, and how to recognize when you are being persuaded by a dealer.
