Today is Take Down Tobacco Day! This annual day of action sponsored by Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids, empowers people to stand up and speak out against the tobacco industry. Our Reality Check program teamed up with the SADD club members at Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk High School to raise awareness about how tobacco companies try to attract youth with brightly-colored packaging, sweet flavors and inexpensive products, often selling them in stores near schools, parks, and playgrounds.
We are proud to stand with the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids and thousands of young people across the country to say we’ve seen enough flavored tobacco products and tobacco marketing in our communities. To learn more about Take Down Tobacco Day visit: https://www.takedowntobacco.org/
