Youth Crew ‘kicks butts’ against tobacco

Continue reading below

Members of the Reading Coalition Against Substance Abuse Youth Crew joined more than 200 youths from across the Commonwealth at the Massachusetts State House March 20 for a “Kick Butts Day” to celebrate their role in reducing the influence of the tobacco industry in their communities. The Youth Crew is a member of The 84 Movement, which helps mobilize youths to take action to make their communities more tobacco-free. During their visit to the State House, the Youth Crew met with lawmakers to discuss the effect that price has on youth tobacco use, and took part in a speaking program with Dr. Lauren Smith, interim commissioner of the state Department of Public Health. Created in 2007, The 84 Movement is a statewide program of the state health department’s Tobacco Cessation and Prevention Program. For more information about the program and work being done throughout the state to make smoking history, visit www.the84.org.
