Movement Elements

Education
Aware Awake Alive works with parents and educators throughout the United States to educate
young people on the symptoms of alcohol poisoning, create awareness on the conditions that
enable it, and encourage responsibility for one another in situations where alcohol is consumed.

Awareness and Dialogue
We support and encourage ongoing dialogue around both needed and established laws or
policies designed to eliminate coercive alcohol consumption and provide limited immunity for
anyone seeking medical treatment for a victim of alcohol overdose.

Partnership
Aware Awake Alive is driven by a core belief and philosophy that lives can and will be saved
simply by working together. We aim to partner with like-minded individuals and organizations
while encouraging an atmosphere of shared responsibility among young people, their peers,
parents, and educators.

Legislation - Texas
 In 2009, the Starkey’s worked with Texas Senator Kirk
Watson to secure the Carson Starkey Alcohol
Awareness and Education Act. This legislation
permanently places alcohol education in the
curriculum of all Texas public schools.
 The Starkey’s also worked with Senator Watson to
create the 911 Lifeline Law (Senate Bill 1331). The Bill
was passed in 2011.
 The 911 Lifeline Law Provides limited immunity for
possessing or consuming alcohol to a minor(under 21)
who calls 911 because someone is a possible victim of
alcohol poisoning.
