TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) - Teen members of Students Against Destructive Decisions learned how to expand their advocacy efforts.

The organization held a statewide rally Tuesday at the Dillon House, off SW 9th and Harrison.

The SAAD organization is active in high schools, focusing on topics such as texting and driving, tobacco, marijuana, seat belts and underage drinking. Several SADD chapters were in the Capital City to learn more about these topics.

Students say they will be able to take lessons from the event back home.

13's Melissa Brunner was among community members serving on various discussion panels. She offered advice on news releases and other avenues for students to promote their events.

Other speakers included State Rep. Peggy Mast, Teresa Briggs from the Flint Hills Regional Prevention Center and Lauren Beatty from Kansas Action for Children.

Kansas Family Partnership helped organize the event.
