Youth Coalition Performs “Shoulder Tap” in Chinatown
Youth Coalition members recently completed an underage drinking awareness event at liquor stores in Chinatown. During a “Shoulder Tap” students visit a neighborhood other than Allston-Brighton (to lessen the chances of being recognized by friends, etc.) and solicit passersby for alcohol outside of liquor stores. If the adult refuses to buy it for them, students give them cards to commend them on doing the right thing while also listing penalties for supplying alcohol to minors. If someone does agree to buying alcohol, they receive a “thumbs down” card which also has the penalties. The Youth Coalition is accompanied by members of ABSATF as well as a Boston police officer during these activities.
