Wisconsin Tobacco Prevention and Control Program - FACT

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.

For more information, visit the FACT web site (exit DHS) or contact Luke Witkowski, American Lung Association, at 608-266-2720.
