Meth Campaign to Continue

The D.C. Crystal Meth working group will be conducting surveys and outreach efforts in gay bars and clubs Jan. 25 through 27, part of the group’s ongoing ”Let’s Talk About Meth” campaign. The information gathered will be analyzed and presented at a town hall meeting Feb. 26, at 7 p.m. at the Human Rights Campaign Equality Forum (check location).

The outreach includes hand cards for patrons, posters on crystal meth awareness, and ”Let’s Talk About Meth” t-shirts worn by bar employees.

The Crystal Meth working group was founded by The Center-Home for GLBT, and includes groups such as Brother Help Thyself (BHT), Whitman-Walker Clinic and the Sexual Minority Youth Assistance League (SMYAL).
