Wisconsin Tobacco Prevention and Control Program - Youth Tobacco Prevention and Advocacy

FACT, Wisconsin's Youth Empowerment Movement

FACT, Wisconsin's Youth Empowerment Movement, has reached over 6,000 teens who use activism initiatives to educate their peers on the dangers 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. FACT youth participate in education and activism events such as e-mail blitzes, letter writing, and community and school presentations.
