New York State’s young people have been mobilizing to protest tobacco marketing and to raise awareness of its impact on teen smoking. They’ve created YouTube videos, participated in media events, visited their local legislators, and collected petition signatures. There’s even a web page, SeenEnoughTobacco, to further their campaign.
If you’ve seen enough tobacco marketing to kids, there are lots of ways you can help!
