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.

"Finish it!" with immediate steeply higher tobacco taxes plus T21. Teenagers and twentysomethings on an allowance or in entry level jobs are easily priced out of the tobacco market and by the time their incomes increase later they are past the age when 90% of nicotine addicts start smoking. This will create a tobacco-free generation.
