 Values

Collaboration: Our members include:

  • Community leaders from community-based agencies and faith-based organizations
  • Representatives from health clinics, state/county health departments, and research centers, and
  • Youth.

[ Coalition Partners ]

Building Community Capacity: We provide resources, leadership development training, and education to our partners, who can then mobilize their respective communities to address health disparities issues.

Youth Leadership & Self-Empowerment: We value youth involvement by supporting leadership development and educational activities.

Education: We educate our partners about all aspects of tobacco, e-cigarettes/vapes and marijuana, so that they may share this knowledge with others in their communities.  These aspects include:

  • Harmful effects to smoker
  • Harmful effects of second-hand smoking
  • Cessation resources
  • Media literacy
  • Current regulations

When possible, we also provide education on healthy nutrition, active living, childhood obesity and other health disparity issues.
