Tobacco control: saving lives and driving development

2017 is one of our most exciting years yet! We are plugging away on 3 concrete paths to ZERO tobacco use prevalence. That’s right. Zero. If you want to see that come to new-donation-buttonfruition, make a donation today. None of this will be possible without your ongoing support.

  • One path is to continue pushing the current global best practices of our tobacco control community, such as high tobacco taxes, smoke-free air policies, and graphic health warning labels on tobacco packages.
  • Our 2nd path you may have heard us mention before. We want to hold tobacco corporations and executives criminally liable for the harm they cause, and we are getting close to doing just that. Stay tuned.
  • Our 3rd path is to eventually end the sale of tobacco products as a normal consumer good.

If you’re tired of seeing Big Tobacco profit from the deaths they cause and ready to see tobacco products removed from stores, donate today in support of our Destination Zero.
