On March 31, Tobacco Free Lancaster County (TFLC, TobaccoFreeLancasterCounty.org) is celebrating ‘Take Down Tobacco’ National Day of Action, a nationwide movement to stand up and speak out against the tobacco industry organized by the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids.
For far too long, the tobacco industry has targeted kids and vulnerable groups with tobacco products, leading to addiction, disease, and death in our community. Now, they’re trying to fool Gen-Z into their cycle of addiction with flavored products, potent doses of nicotine, and misinformation that they have changed their ways and are no longer the bad guys. That’s why TFLC and youth in Lincoln and Lancaster County are calling out Big Tobacco and joining the nationwide movement to #TakeDownTobacco.
Organized by the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids, Take Down Tobacco empowers youth to create change in their schools, communities, and states and help achieve the first tobacco-free generation.
TFLC works with youth organizations and schools by providing resources and offering presentations throughout the year and can help your organization #TakeDownTobacco in 2023. For more information, visit www.TobaccoFreeLancasterCounty.org or www.takedowntobacco.org.
Funding provided by the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services/Tobacco Free Nebraska Program as a result of the Tobacco Master Settlement Agreement.
