On March 24, the 15th annual Kick Butts Day, hundreds of youth in every state and around the world will STAND OUT … SPEAK UP … and SEIZE CONTROL AGAINST BIG TOBACCO.
Kick Butts Day (KBD) is a national day of advocacy that empowers youth to speak up and take action against tobacco use through hundreds of events from coast to coast. Last year, we celebrated KBD with over 1,000 events across the country. Now we need your help to make KBD 2010 better than ever.
This year, KBD is going to concentrate on the three important public health initiatives:
- Fully-funded state tobacco prevention and cessation programs.
- Higher state tobacco taxes.
- 100% smoke-free workplaces and public places.
Fact sheets on each of the three initiatives are available for advocates to download on the new policy corner section of our website, www.kickbuttsday.org. We’ve also loaded up our KBD website with activity ideas to help you plan an event.
Once you’ve chosen a KBD activity, registering your event is quick and easy! And after an event is registered, our KBD Media Team can help your event attract media attention.
So what are you waiting for? Will the Girl Scouts in your state join hundreds of youth advocates nationwide in standing out, speaking up, and seizing control against Big Tobacco on March 24, 2010?
