Combating Underage Drinking Coalition

The Combating Underage Drinking (CUD) Coalition consists of a diverse group of individuals dedicated to reducing both underage access to alcohol as well as excessive drinking by underage youth. Through collaboration, coalition members meet regularly to discuss and develop strategies to reduce underage drinking, college drinking, excessive drinking and related consequences.

Mission

The mission of the CUD is to reduce both underage access to alcohol and the high-risk use of alcohol by youth and young adults in the Baltimore Metropolitan area through the collaborative efforts of a diverse group of members utilizing a variety of comprehensive strategies. The internal goal is to facilitate and sustain active, diverse collaboration and communication among agencies, organizations and individuals to address underage drinking related issues. External goals include:

  • Reduce youth access to alcohol by addressing commercial availability through alcohol retail establishments
  • Reduce youth access to alcohol by addressing social availability
  • Increased, consistent enforcement of underage drinking laws
  • Building community and judicial support of consistent enforcement
  • Increased community recognition and willingness to deal with the issue of underage drinking
  • Pursue policy change that affects alcohol misuse by underage individuals, as needed
  • Promote the education of youth, parents and the community on the dangers and consequences of high risk drinking

Meetings

The Coalition meets every other month from September through May on the third Tuesday from 9:30 to 11 a.m. Meetings are held at Towson University. Community members are welcome to attend. Agendas and minutes are PDFs that will open in a new window.
