Take Down Tobacco National Day of Action

UPDATE:
In light of public gatherings being canceled due to COVID-19, a #TakeDownTobacco Digital Power Wall has been created!

This tool allows you to tell the world why YOU are in this fight. In 10 seconds, you'll have a customized graphic that you can share on social media. Plus, your statement will be featured on a rolling display on the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids website. Event organizers will use the display to educate their peers and decision-makers about why we must protect kids by standing up to the tobacco and vaping industries.  

Plus, the Power Wall will take any Twitter or Instagram post that uses the hashtag #TakeDownTobacco – and will automatically put them on the display too.

From the Take Down Tobacco website.  Take Down Tobacco is a program of the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids

The Take Down Tobacco National Day of Action is a day of activism where communities across the globe rally to push for the first tobacco-free generation. Youth tobacco rates are at a 20-year high in the U.S. due to the worsening youth e-cigarette epidemic, and tobacco is still the No. 1 cause of death in the U.S. and across the globe. On March 18, 2020, students, teachers, parents, elected leaders, health professionals, advocates and concerned citizens just like you are standing up to Take Down Tobacco.

What is Take Down Tobacco?

Take Down Tobacco is a fresh take on Kick Butts Day — the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids annual day of action. The Take Down Tobacco program is a 365-day effort that culminates every March with the Take Down Tobacco National Day of Action. 2020 marks the 25th anniversary of this program, and there have been many important victories since the first Kick Butts Day was held in 1996.

There is a  a new website filled with resources to help you get involved right now. Local event registration is open, and activity kits are available while supplies last.
