Coalitions in Action: Tribal Coalition Passes Policy Banning Packaged Alcohol Sales | CADCA

After local data showed that the Pueblo of Laguna tribal community was experiencing major problems with underage and binge drinking, the Laguna Prevention Coalition knew they had to take drastic measures to address the problem. So they worked with local leaders to ban packaged alcohol sales on the reservation.

When the New Mexico-based Laguna Prevention Coalition first formed, they never envisioned a prohibitionist type of policy for their reservation, which includes six villages: Laguna, Mesita, Paguate, Seama, Paraje and Encinal. However, local survey data showed that buying alcohol at the grocery store was causing overconsumption, especially by underage youth.
