Community Events

049- zero alcohol for nine months

Each year, MOFAS participates in and sponsors dozens of events where women of all races, socioeconomic status, and in large and small communities across Minnesota can get accurate information on the danger of drinking alcohol during pregnancy. At these events, MOFAS staff and FASD Prevention Grantees share the 049 prevention message through fun SWAG like chapsticks, baby onesies, window clings and buttons that remind women that there is no safe level of alcohol during pregnancy. Find community events in your area that are promoting the 049 message here.

For more information on the FASD Prevention Grants contact Sarah Gilland at 651-917-2370 or sgilland@mofas.org.
