May 7-13 is Public Servant Recognition Week. Without our Public Servants, our mission at the Preventing Tobacco Addiction Foundation and Tobacco 21 would not be possible. In many of the places that we work with, our main contact is a public servant interested in improving the health of their community through tobacco control laws.
The next time you step outside and take a breath of clean air, drink a glass of clean water, go swimming in a lake or beach that isn’t contaminated, walk into a smoke-free workplace, airplane or restaurant, remember to thank a public servant!
A big thank you to all public servants from the PTAF and T21 team around the country.
Make sure to check out our advocacy materials to see how you can make your city, county, or state a Tobacco 21 locality.
