RADAR Coalition - Candlelight Walk May 2016The Rensselaer Area Drug Awareness Reality Coalition is a community coalition. Our members are also members of the local Rensselaer community, and we are working for change among our family and friends. Because we are a part of the community, we are more accessible to individuals and we are more attuned to the specific needs of the Rensselaer community.
