Press Conference Formally Launches New Programming and Focus

At a September 16, 2015 press conference in Moorhead, Northern Lights SADD officially launched its revised Reality Check curriculum for elementary students, a new State Farm-funded traffic safety lesson and the new NL SADD Constitution. This constitution, created by our 2015–2016 Northern Lights Advisory Board (the NLAB), serves to clarify the mission of our NL SADD network and our focus on what we are “for”, not what we are “against”.

Please read our new constitution (PDF, 44.60 KB).
