Above the Influence Updates

Above the Influence students recently completed a "community scan" at a local gas station/convenience store. Using their knowledge of the tricky marketing techniques used by tobacco and alcohol companies, they assessed how those images and messages can negatively impact the youth in their community by normalizing substance use. Here are some excerpts from ATI students’ Like-Wonder-Wish list debrief after our retailer visit: 

“We like that you have a lot of “We I.D.” signs.” 

“We wonder if you can raise the height of your ads to grown-up height.” 

“We wish that 75% of your windows outside were not covered in alcohol and tobacco ads.”
