Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids
The Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids strongly supports an increase in the federal tobacco tax, which the Administration has identified as the funding source for its early learning initiative. Tobacco taxes are a proven way to reduce tobacco use, especially by young people. On the day of the Summit and during coming months, we will communicate how both tobacco taxes and early learning enhance the health and well-being of our children. Through social media and email lists, we will encourage public health advocates across the country to speak out about the benefits of increasing tobacco taxes to finance early learning. We will look for opportunities to promote Invest in US in press releases, statements, blogs, and social media activity.
