Florida Youth Advocates on the Track for Success in Flagler County

Three Flagler County teens, as part of Students Working Against Tobacco (SWAT), are seeing progress in their effort to raise the age in Florida. Daniel Thomas, Kamrin Bunn, and Bella Giuliano have been working on raising the age since November and have seen good community buy-in. Traveling to individual City Councils for support before approaching the Board of County Commissioners, they are working locally and garnering support from key stakeholders in their communities. Youth advocates like Thomas, Bunn, and Giuliano are key to creating successful Tobacco 21 campaigns. Check out the link above for The Daytona Beach News-Journal’s article highlighting the great effort put forth by these youth advocates.
