Project Stand Up is a FOUR level advocacy program to reduce Drug Crime in South Dakota that has been endorsed by the State Attorney General, as well as the Governor’s offices.
The four components of the project are:

This allows citizens to TEXT information safely and 100% anonymously about illegal drug use to law enforcement authorities.
2. School curriculum/activities (middle and high school).
A five-day curriculum has been produced to educate youth about illegal drug use.
3. Community Mobilization
A Project Stand Up Pledge has been developed for distribution through schools, churches, community groups, businesses, and individuals.
4. Multi-Media Campaign
A proactive media campaign has been developed with a very direct message…”Stand Up to Drug Crime in South Dakota.”
