Mission Statement: Be Bothered is dedicated to reshaping our community's approach to underage alcohol and marijuana use. We strive to create a safe and substance-free environment for youth in Sacramento County by educating and advocating for change. 

History: The Be Bothered Movement was started in 2018 by local youth and caring adults who were concerned about underage alcohol and drug use in Sacramento County. 

Be Bothered is a member of the Sacramento County Coalition for Youth (SCCY), a group of caring community members working together to make Sacramento a safe place for young people to grow up, free from the influences of substances that are addictive and harmful. Visit SCCY's Future Forward page to learn more about this unique youth marijuana use prevention campaign.​

Staffing and coordination for Be Bothered is provided by Center for Collaborative Planning, Public Health Institute.

We believe all youth should have a safe and substance-free environment.
