ChangeLab Solutions has worked on tobacco control policy for nearly two decades, and our model tobacco control policies and laws helped change the public acceptance of smoking in California. Our largest program, formerly known as the Technical Assistance Legal Center (TALC), funded by the California Department of Public Health, provides California communities with free technical assistance on tobacco control policy issues.
We provide advocates, health professionals, government attorneys, and elected officials with high-quality products and services on tobacco control policies. Tailored support is available throughout the process of law and policy development, including research on specific legal issues and analyzing draft ordinances and policies. Thanks to ongoing funding from the California Department of Public Health, many of those services are provided at no cost to California communities!
