Community Conversation/Town Hall
In March 2019, the WVPC agreed to host a Community Conversation/Town Hall focusing on underage drinking and youth marijuana use. We had a panel of experts on the current laws, trends in use and consequences of youth use. The date for the Town Hall was May 16, 2019. We partnered with the Albert Wisner Library and Family Central to hold the event. Beverly Braxton of Family Central was the moderator. Guest panelists were Barry Cheney, Orange County Legislator and WVPC member who helped sponsor the OC Social Host Law, TWPD Sgt. Morley and Jennifer Ocasio of the Mid-Hudson Prevention Resource Center of ADAC. The WVPC Coordinator Ryan Caldwell also participated on the panel.
