CounterTobacco.org is proud to partner with the following organizations:
The Center for Public Health and Tobacco Policy is a resource for communities striving to improve public health through implementing evidence-based policies. Funded to work with the New York State cancer prevention program and the tobacco control programs of both New York and Vermont, the center provides support for policies that reduce the availability of tobacco products; protect non-smokers from secondhand smoke; minimize tobacco advertising and promotion; increase cancer screening rates; and promote healthy behaviors. It is affiliated with the Tobacco Control Legal Consortium and is part of the Public Health Advocacy Institute (PHAI) at Northeastern University Law School.
ChangeLab Solutions, formerly known as Public Health Law & Policy, has more than 15 years of tobacco control policy experience. Based in California, they offer a wealth of model policies and fact sheets specific to POS issues.
The mission of the American Lung Association in California is to save lives by improving lung health and preventing lung disease through education, awareness, advocacy and research. Their Center for Tobacco Policy & Organizing project website has many resources to increase the effectiveness of tobacco control advocates. Resources include fact sheets and polling information around the retail environment, as well as a number of community organizing tools.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention—Office on Smoking and Health (OSH) is the lead federal agency for comprehensive tobacco prevention and control. Here you can find many resources related to tobacco control as well as information and data related to state tobacco control programs.
