The Substance Abuse Prevention Coalition of Alexandria (SAPCA) recently launched “I don’t vape because…” a social media campaign to raise awareness about the dangers of vaping and inspire youth to stay substance free. The videos were created by high school students involved in the school’s TV production class and highlight some of the reasons youth do not vape. SAPCA invited social media users to share the videos and tag others to share the content with their own networks; SAPCA also created sample social media posts that users could share with the videos.

The sample social media posts can be found here: https://www.alexandriava.gov/sapca/info/default.aspx?id=111915#SMC

Please feel free to share these videos within your communities to help spread the word about this positive social norm that most youth are not vaping.
