Tobacco Free Kids strives to educate children of the negative impacts tobacco and smoking can have on their lives. They explain their mission on their website:
The Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids is a leading force in the fight to reduce tobacco use and its deadly toll in the United States and around the world. Our vision: A future free of the death and disease caused by tobacco. We work to save lives by advocating for public policies that prevent kids from smoking, help smokers quit and protect everyone from secondhand smoke.
One of their tactics is called “Kick Butts Day”. Organizations all over the country can hold their own anti-smoking events on Kick Butts Day and Tobacco Free Kids will help promote them. A quick summary of Kick Butts Day from the website reads:
Kick Butts Day is a day of activism that empowers youth to stand out, speak up and seize control against Big Tobacco at more than 1,000 events planned by independent organizers across the United States and around the world.
