Check out the

Beautiful Lies, Ugly Truth 
video!

The Center for Multicultural Health recently created this anti-menthol PSA to draw attention to the harms of menthol cigarettes and to make our youth’s voices heard in speaking out against big tobacco’s targeting of minority communities.

The video was created by the Tobacco, Marijuana, and other Drugs (TMoD) work group of the Healthy King County Coalition as part of the work group’s effort to build community awareness and support strategies to reduce the impact of tobacco, marijuana, and other drugs.

2018 206Rising Hip Hop Showcase 
video!

This video was produced by Rainier Beach youth, and details the Hip Hop 2 Prevent Substance Abuse and HIV showcase event held June 8th 2018.

Over 100 youth, parents and community members attended the Showcase event and it was a great to see the youth perform their skits, show off their art and fashion and their dance and final song were great.
The event really demonstrated the positive power of hip hop to deliver a prevention message.
