The Philippines is fighting a brutal war on drugs that some have termed “out of control.” Recently elected President Rodrigo Duterte campaigned on a promise to fight drugs in the country and is leading a bloody crackdown that many say is encouraging vigilante execution of drug dealers and addicts. Join Active Minds as we review the history of the Philippines in an attempt to understand the context for the current situation and gain insight into where this important U.S. ally in the region may be heading in the future.
The MCA Is Going Green!
Did you know that out of all the plastic water bottles used in the United States only less than a third are collected for recycling? Most of the plastic water bottles will end up in landfills or, more unfortunately, into our waterways. In an effort to help alleviate this problem, the MCA will no longer sell plastic water bottles. Instead, we will sell boxed water! The boxed water will come in three different sizes and be available at our events and pools.
If you have any questions or comments about the information above, please feel free to contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call the MCA office at 303.388.0724.
