Liberty Alliance For Youth

Our mission is to reduce alcohol, tobacco and other drug abuse, violence and other negative behaviors and improve the lives of the entire Liberty Community.

WHO WE ARE

LAFY is a member of CADCA (Community Anti-Drug Coalitions of America). We are one of the many coalitions across the country working to prevent youth substance use in our communities. LAFY is made up of people from all sectors of the Liberty community: educators, parents, youth, law enforcement officers, business representatives, government officials, pastors and other community members… all volunteering time to help build a strong future for Liberty.

WHAT WE DO

LAFY is committed to preventing and reducing substance use and violence among our youth. Through community involvement and sharing of resources, LAFY develops programs and pursues environmental strategies that send a unified message that alcohol tobacco and other drug use by minors, or associated violent behavior, is not acceptable.

HOW YOU CAN HELP

If you’d like to get involved, please attend our meetings. We meet on the second Wednesday of the month from 12:00 – 1:30 p.m. at Clay County Public Health Center during the months of September, October, November, January, February, March, April and May.

This film looks at the unintended consequences of the normalization of marijuana. 3 initiatives to legalize medical marijuana will be on Missouri’s November ballot. I would encourage you to educate yourself before voting. This film is a great place to start.https://vimeo.com/280127474
