“Straight Up - Rise Above the Influence” Rally

An “Above the Influence” design is painted during Anacapa’s “Straight Up: Above the Influence” event last week.

The Partnership at DrugFree.org and its partners are joined by teens from across the country today to celebrate National “Above the Influence” Day.

ATI Day is a time to celebrate youth living the “Above the Influence” lifestyle, as well as to recognize the power of prevention efforts in local communities. Many youth-serving organizations are hosting ATI Day events and activities in their communities to recognize and empower teens living “above” the pressure to use drugs or alcohol or engage in other risky behaviors.
