For more than 20 years, the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids has fought to protect children and save lives from the #1 cause of preventable death: tobacco use. Their vision is a future free of the death and disease caused by tobacco.
Because tobacco has killed enough.
They are the leading advocacy organization working to reduce tobacco use and its deadly consequences in the United States and around the world. Through strategic communications and policy advocacy campaigns, they promote the adoption of proven solutions that are most effective at reducing tobacco use and save the most lives.
They are passionate and experienced public health advocates with a more than 20-year track record of leading and supporting successful policy advocacy campaigns:
In the United States, they work at the national, state and local levels.
Around the world, they are active in low- and middle-income countries facing the greatest threat from tobacco.
In addition to their work fighting tobacco use, their Global Health Advocacy Incubator applies their broad range of advocacy experience to supporting organizations working to address other critical public health challenges.
They’re making incredible progress against tobacco:
In the U.S., their work has helped drive smoking rates to record lows.
Around the world, they’re helping to turn the tide of a global tobacco epidemic that would otherwise kill one billion people this century.
But the battle against tobacco is far from over:
Tobacco still kills nearly half a million Americans and more than 7 million people worldwide each year.
The tobacco industry relentlessly peddles its deadly products, targeting kids and other vulnerable populations.
Their remarkable progress shows that they can win the fight against tobacco. The Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids is unyielding in their resolve and committed to finishing the job.
