Advancing Tobacco Free Communities

Advancing Healthier Communities where we live, work, and play

Through partnering with youth, parents, and community leaders, we create lasting changes that prevent youth tobacco use, support tobacco-free choices, and decrease exposure to secondhand smoke.

TOBACCO INDUSTRY INFLUENCE WHERE WE SHOP

Exposure to retail tobacco marketing leads to increased youth initiation of smoking and disproportionately impacts low-income communities.

TOBACCO IMAGERY ON SCREEN

Smoking on screen recruits 390,00 teens to start smoking every day, one-third of which will die prematurely from tobacco-related illness.

TOBACCO USE WHERE WE LIVE

Secondhand smoke and vapor drift from neighboring apartments and creates unhealthy living conditions for everyone in the building.

TOBACCO USE WHERE WE WORK

Smoking on workplace grounds exposes employees, visitors, and clients to harmful secondhand smoke.

TOBACCO USE WHERE WE PLAY

Exposure to secondhand smoke and tobacco litter in outdoor recreational areas including parks and beaches can be hazardous – especially for children.
