The Truth about Menthol and African American Communities
Big Tobacco’s shameful record includes targeting youth and adults in communities of color and underserved populations with menthol products resulting in the disproportionately higher use rates by minority smokers.
E-Cigarettes & Vaping
These devices are creating a whole new generation of smokers by targeting our youth. We are leading the way in urging regulation of these devices, the liquids in them and ensuring they stay out of the hands of kids.
We are working with federally qualified, local health clinics to reduce the incidence of heart attacks and strokes by improving high blood pressure and cholesterol control rates, in populations most at risk.
Healthy Food Access
It’s hard to eat healthy from gas stations or corner stores. We’re working to ensure that everyone knows what it means to eat healthy and has the opportunity to buy affordable, healthy food and beverages.
