Kick Butt

Gustavo Torrez - March 13, 2017

Rosemont College is taking part in "Kick Butts Day." Read this post from Kick Butts bloger writer: Gustavo Torrez

Kick Butts Day, and youth everywhere are standing up to Big Tobacco. We’re expecting more than 1,000 creative events across the United States and around the world.

The Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids is proud to sponsor Kick Butts Day and fights every day to protect kids from tobacco addiction. We know that today teachers, parents, health advocates and many others will be standing with our youth and working to make the next generation tobacco-free.

Elected officials have an especially critical role to play by supporting proven strategies to reduce tobacco use – like higher tobacco taxes, strong smoke-free laws, well-funded tobacco prevention programs and raising the tobacco sale age to 21.

We’ve made amazing progress and cut youth smoking to record lows. But we can never let up in fighting tobacco because the tobacco industry never lets up in targeting kids. In fact, Big Tobacco spends $9.6 billion a year – more than one million every hour – to market its deadly and addictive products, and a lot of it is still aimed at kids.
