Alcohol Warning Posters: How To Get Legislation Passed in Your City.
Center for Science in the Public Interest, Washington, DC.
This manual was developed to assist citizens seeking alcohol warning posters wherever alcoholic beverages are sold. Warning posters can include health information about drinking during pregnancy, the danger of using alcohol while driving or using machinery, or alcohol dependency and addiction. Warning posters are now required in cities such as New York and Philadelphia and in Maine and California. This guide therefore gives advice to activists interested in seeking timely legislation, describes warning poster laws, and provides strategies for obtaining health messages in bars, restaurants, and liquor stores. This manual also provides information on where to put warning signs, how to prepare a warning poster law, how to build a successful coalition, how to push for legislation educating the public, how to use the media to educate society, and how to develop a press list and press release. A list of national organizations interested in alcoholic problems and fetal alcohol syndrome warning signs and poster law is appended. (BHK).
