What is the 922 Initiative?

On this episode of the Anti-Drug Coalition Podcast, Jodi Salvo is joined by two special guests to discuss the 922 Iniative in the Twin Cities. Diana Smith from OhioGuidestone and Teri Edwards from the Twin City Chamber of Commerce discuss the program that started 2 years ago to comabt the increase in drug overdoeses and overdoes deaths in the Twin City area.

Kids in school were asked to draw outlines of their hands. Then, on each finger of the hand, the kids wrote the names of safe, trusted adults in their lives. But what if a child doesn't have a safe, trusted adult to talk to?

The kids were encouraged to write "police" on one finger to help them understand that police are safe, trusted adults they can turn to. Also, orange signs with hand outlines have been posted around the Twin Cities to mark "safe zones" where kids can report any abuse or drug-related problems they've experienced. Note: "Safe zones" are public locations that have been apprvoed. "Safe zone" signs will never be posted in private homes.
