POW'R Against Tobacco is a community partnership coalition made up of organizations and private citizens who live or work in Putnam County NY, Orange County NY, Westchester County NY and Rockland County NY. Dedicated to reducing the risk of cancer, heart disease and other tobacco related illnesses, POW'R Against Tobacco works to lower the prevalence of tobacco use, advertising, sponsorship and promotion through education, media and advocacy. Our goal is to implement strategies and programs that will decrease the social acceptability of tobacco use. Within the four counties we serve in New York State, our tobacco-free initiatives include: Entryway Bans, Clean Outdoor Air, Smoke Free Housing, Tobacco Free Stores and Reducing Tobacco Industry Store Marketing.
Funded through a grant from the New York State Department of Health Tobacco Control Program, POW'R Against Tobacco is one of 29 community partnerships across New York State dedicated to making each community a healthier place to live, work and play.
