Arkansas Tobacco Free Kids Day

Arkansas Tobacco Free Kids Day

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (Ark. Youth Leadership Initiative) - Kids from across Arkansas will convene in Little Rock to join in the fight against tobacco and other nicotine use on Wednesday, March 18th with a Silent March and Mock Funeral along Capitol Avenue, followed by a press conference on the steps of the State Capitol.

Sponsored by the Arkansas Youth Leadership Initiative and other public health partners, Arkansas Tobacco Free Kids Day is an annual celebration of youth leadership and activism in the fight against tobacco use. Kids are sending two powerful messages on this day: They want the tobacco companies to stop targeting them with marketing for cigarettes, e-cigarettes, and other tobacco products and they want elected leaders to do more to protect them from tobacco.
