We have changed our name from the NEW TRADITION COALITION to DRAW THE LINE LAWRENCE so it better fits our purpose and mission. We call on all community members to come together and DRAW THE LINE on underage drinking and drug use for a healthier and safer place to live.

Shelby's Rule: Alcohol + Vomiting = 911

The 'ER' final episode aired on April 2nd including the alcohol poisoning story in memory of Shelby Allen. The Shelby Lyn Allen Alcohol Poisoning Education Fund was established after Aebbie Allen's 17 year-old daughter, an 11th grade student at Foothill High School in Palo Cedro, California died of acute alcohol poisoning. Below is a link to their very informative, powerful and emotional web site that would be great to share with the teens in your life. On this site, there is a unique tip for teens. Make a group text on your cell phone with 5 of your trusted friends and at least one adult. Use this 911 text group to dial for help if you find yourself in trouble. They will be there to spring into action and get the help you need.
