Event description

Description

Every day, teens are bombarded with messages telling them what to do, how to look, and who to be with. These messages are found wherever kids turn—on television shows, on the news, on social media, and in video games. These messages often depict teens using drugs and engaging in other unhealthy behaviors. The reality, however, is that the majority of teens do not use drugs. Instead, they're leading their peers in preventing substance misuse and promoting mental health wellness by getting involved in youth-led prevention.

The We Are The Majority Rally was created to counter the false perception that most young people use drugs. It lets teens know that they're not alone when they decide not to use drugs. Since the rally began in 2011, more than 12,000 teens have marched in it.

This year's WATM Rally will take place on April 30th and will feature performances from Columbus' own Paragon Project and Pray for Sleep.

The WATM Rally is an event of the Ohio Youth-Led Prevention Network. OYLPN empowers youth to prevent drug misuse and promote mental health wellness among Ohio teens. OYLPN is a network of Prevention Action Alliance, a nonprofit dedicated to leading healthy communities in the prevention of substance misuse and the promotion of mental health wellness.
