Officially, Hear Us is an annual advocacy event hosted by PreventEd for current St. Louis region high school students. Students participating in Hear Us will train and prepare for legislative visits with their State Senator and Representative that is specific to their zip code. Along with the legislative appointments, students will attend a conference on leadership, drug awareness, and prevention.
Unofficially, Hear Us is a chance to connect with other students across the region and to affect real legislative change relating to drugs and drug use in your community. Your concerns about vaping, cannabis, opioids, or other drug related law will be heard by your legislators.
