The Coalition for Prevention and Awareness in LA Metro (CoPALM) and KYCC’s Table Top Campaign teamed up with 8 restaurants and bars in Los Angeles to launch the Table Top Campaign for the 2022 St. Patrick’s Day holiday. CoPALM’s Table Top Campaign disseminated approximately 600 coasters with anti-drunk driving messaging in English and Spanish. The materials will remind customers to drink responsibly and practice safe driving habits during the holidays.
The Table Top Campaign (TTC) is a project the Prevention Education Unit first launched in Spring 2019 within The Coalition for Prevention and Awareness in LA Metro (CoPALM) coalition that aims to educate the consequences of drunk driving and focuses its efforts in areas of Los Angeles. Since 2019, CoPALM has partnered with 58 businesses throughout SPA-4 and disseminated approximately 6,100 materials. The coalition has been working hard to launch more campaigns, targeting holidays where the majority of the public tend to drink. As a result, this project has grown quickly in partnerships with local businesses.
According to MADD, there were about 10,142 people killed in alcohol-impaired driving crashes. Through the Table Top Campaign (TTC), CoPALM aims to prevent drunk driving and impaired decision-making due to alcohol use. The majority of the bars and restaurants still believe that the Table Top Campaign and the continuous distribution of the coasters with a prevention message is important to remind and educate their customers to be responsible and to prevent customers from drinking and driving.
