Who We Are

ParentsEmpowered.org is a media and education campaign funded by the Utah Legislature and designed to prevent and reduce underage drinking in Utah by providing parents and guardians with information about the harmful effects of alcohol on the developing teen brain, along with proven skills for preventing underage alcohol use.

The Utah Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control is the lead agency for the campaign and is working in partnership with other state agencies and organizations, including the following: Attorney General’s Office, Department of Health, Department of Public Safety/Highway Patrol and Highway Safety Office, Division of Substance Abuse and Mental Health, Juvenile Court, State Office of Education, Mothers Against Drunk Driving (M.A.D.D.)/Utah Chapter, Utah Prevention Network, and Utah Substance Abuse and Anti-Violence Coordinating Council.

This year’s annual report includes interactive links to showcase the campaign’s success, including creative samples and news coverage. Look for the green play buttons throughout the report to watch or listen to the audio/visual files.
