WHO WE ARE
The NYC Coalition for a Smoke-Free City is a health advocacy group working to increase awareness around tobacco control. Partnering with community members, legislators, and health advocates, we support local efforts for effective and long-term change throughout NYC.
WHAT WE DO
- Reduce youth exposure to tobacco marketing.
- Increase the number of smoke-free outdoor spaces.
- Increase the number of apartment buildings, co-ops and condos that are 100% smoke-free.
- Engage community partners to build support for policy campaigns.
WHAT WE BELIEVE
We believe that every NYC resident has the right to breathe clean, smoke-free air where they live, work and play. We believe that it is unacceptable for NYC youth to be lured into a life of tobacco addiction. We believe that every smoker deserves the support and resources to quit. The Coalition is a program of Public Health Solutions and is funded through grants from the Department of Health and Human Services and the New York State Department of Health.
