Celebrate the holidays responsibly. The ILCC is committed to raising awareness about the negative consequences of underage drinking. Adults, it's NOT safer to provide alcohol to youth or allow #underagedrinking in your home! Check out our Social Host Law in Illinois Webinar https://youtu.be/Db4A2YgjpRs

Studies indicate that social host laws are among the most effective and recommended ways to reduce underage drinking. Social host liability laws hold individuals who knowingly provide or allow the use of alcohol by minors or intoxicated adults liable for resulting property damage, injury, death or violation fines. https://www.prevention.org/
