The SFHIP Alcohol Policy Partnership Working Group aims to create policy solutions to alcohol-related public health and safety harms in San Francisco. Our initial focus is on reducing crime and public nuisance activities around liquor stores by strengthening municipal control of retail/offsale alcohol access and availability. Under the auspices of SFHIP, we are using health disparities and environmental prevention frameworks and a collective impact model to develop a multi-sector partnership of stakeholders representing and working in neighborhoods burdened by high rates of violent crime and public nuisance activity and high density of liquor stores (often directly correlated).
