Health Equity: Tobacco Prevention

Second-hand smoke is now the 3rd cause of preventable death, with over 41,000 deaths in the US each year. Through our partnership with LA County Public Health Department, we are 1 of 21 agencies working to create a healthier LA by protecting renters from second-hand smoke by advocating for smoke-free multi-unit housing policies.
Focusing on Signal Hill and Hawaiian Gardens, youth leaders and adult allies will lead public opinion surveys, engage in strategic planning, and build local coalitions of partners invested in creating a healthier community.
