Get Involved!

Things YOU can do to make our community healthier and safer:

  • Learn about the advertising strategies that Big Tobacco companies use to target and attract underage youth. 
  • Learn about the campaign to fight against Point of Sale advertising tactics in retail stores and what other countries are doing.
  • Find out about what retailers and municipalities are doing to oppose tobacco advertising in your local stores and communities, and check out what is being done to ensure that public outdoor areas and housing units are smoker-free friendly.
  • These organizations and businesses have already signed our statement of support... Will you?

SIGN OUR PETITION TO LET YOUR LOCAL STAKEHOLDERS KNOW THAT TOBACCO ADVERTISING AFFECTS YOUTH AND SHOULDN'T BE ALLOWED IN STORES. 

  • Talk with others to spread the word on supporting a healthy environment for children and the public. 

ENCOURAGE THEM TO SPREAD THE WORD BY SENDING AN E-CARD!

  • Recognize the influence that second-hand smoke has on your life... 
    Ask the organizations and institutions that you're a part of to adopt a smoke-free grounds policy. Sample policies can be found on our resources page.
  •  Write a letter to the editor expressing your concerns regarding tobacco. The Press and Sun Bulletin accepts letters of 150 words or less. Email your letters to bgm-letters@gannett.com, and don't forget to include your name, address, and daytime phone number.
  • If you know someone who wants to quit: let them know about the NYS Smokers' Quitline: 1-866-NY-QUITS (1-866-697-8487), or invite them to visit www.nysmokefree.com. Be sure to check out local cessation programs by clicking here.
