The Student Wellness Action Team of Santa Fe, New Mexico (also known as SWAT) presents an all new Audio Revolution show on the topic of DWI (Driving While Intoxicated).  SWAT is comprised of students who are interested in preventing substance abuse (tobacco, alcohol, and other drugs) and promoting wellness in their community.  DWI is a very real issue in the state of New Mexico and students from SWAT present a variety of perspectives on this sensitive topic, through interviews, personal narratives, poetry, music and a radio drama.  Youth Media Project was grateful to work with SWAT to produce this compelling, emotional and important Audio Revolution show on the very important topic of DWI.  Listen up! Youth voices  are waiting to be heard on this edition of Audio Revolution, SWAT DWI.
