POW’R Against Tobacco is a grass roots community partnership made up of businesses, non-for profit organizations and private citizens who are working together to reduce the social and economic burden caused by tobacco use.
Our core initiatives include reducing tobacco marketing in the retail environment, promoting tobacco-free outdoor spaces free from the harmful effects of secondhand smoke, and increasing the availability of smoke-free homes.
POW’R Against Tobacco utilizes multimedia campaigns, partakes in community events, and provides educational presentations and assistance in an effort to inform, educate, engage and empower individuals to participate in strategies to decrease the social acceptability of tobacco use.
Funded through a grant from the New York State Department of Bureau of Tobacco Control and a program of the American Lung Association of the Northeast, POW’R is one of 29 community partnerships across New York State dedicated to making each community a healthier place to live, work and play.
