Wisconsin Tobacco Prevention and Control Program
FACT, Wisconsin's Youth Empowerment Movement
FACT, Wisconsinís Youth Empowerment Movement, has reached
over 6,000 teens who use activism initiatives to combat the tobacco
industries' promotion of tobacco use. FACT members have engaged in peer and
community education efforts that have helped reduce youth tobacco use, and
have played an integral part in changing community policies on secondhand
smoke and retail sales to youth. Youth participated in education and
activism events that included e-mail blitzes, body art, fashion, letter
writing, and targeted smoke-free campaigns in Wausau, Rhinelander, Stevens
Point, Hudson, Stoughton, Milton, and Wauwatosa.
