Happy Kick Butts Day!

TAP Not a Replacement photo

On Monday, March 16, the Teen Advisory Panel (TAP) students celebrated the 20th Anniversary of Kick Butts Day at the Chinatown Library (2353 S Wentworth Ave). The TAP high school students had created anti-tobacco photographs in the fall. The photographs were unveiled at the Opening Reception on Monday from 6:30-8 PM. The bilingual event was well attended by the community and will continue to be free and open to the public until March 23 in the Community Room.

The event is one of the thousands of events happening around the country to celebrate youth standing against Big Tobacco. To visit events similar to this around you, please browse the interactive map.

Tastes of Toxins

Did you know that today is The Great American Spit Out? This week is Chew Week (February 15-21) calling for recognition on the dangers of smokeless tobacco. Today, the cessation of these products are encouraged, even just for a day.

Additionally, Chicago has recently launched a new campaign called the “Tastes of Toxins“. The “Taste of Toxins” is aimed at youth who are attracted to flashy colorful packaging of the flavored tobacco products, including smokeless dip and chew. However, the products are just as addictive and harmful as conventional tobacco but may have candy or fruit flavor to mask the harshness of tobacco.
