Leadership Alliance To Discuss Youth Drug & Alcohol Abuse & Prevention

The Leadership Alliance, led by Mayor Nancy Rotering, continues its conversation with Lake County government officials, community leaders and the public on Thursday, December 8 from 7:00 PM – 8:30 PM at Highland Park High School, 433 Vine Avenue in Highland Park. A panel of experts will discuss education and prevention strategies that have been implemented to reduce the use and abuse of alcohol and drugs by youths within our communities.   Illinois State Representative Lou Lang is the keynote speaker. Mayor Nancy Rotering will moderate a panel that includes: Lake County State’s Attorney Michael Nerheim; Community. The Anti-Drug Executive Director Barbara de Nekker; Jordan Michael Filler Foundation Chairman Mark Filler; and Highland Park High School Psychologist Gus Pappadimas. The event is free and open to the public.

“As government officials, community leaders and neighbors, we know that shared values and responsibilities help make our communities strong and keep our youth safe,” stated Mayor Nancy Rotering. “Working together, sharing best practices and having regular conversations about drug and alcohol abuse will increase our ability to reach adolescents before they are exposed to drugs and alcohol, diminish the risk of addiction, and increase the likelihood of success in school and beyond.”

Mayor Nancy Rotering established the Leadership Alliance in 2013. It was created to stimulate conversations among regional leaders (civic, corporate, and non-profit), focusing on unique opportunities for addressing human service needs, promoting business development, supporting environmental initiatives, enhancing public safety, and other opportunities to develop regional partnerships and collaboration. The Leadership Alliance has explored a broad range of topics including the demand for seamless regional transit, food insecurity, a regional anti-bullying campaign, the importance of civic engagement by businesses and gun violence prevention.
