Equity in the Smokefree Policy Process

Hear from the National Alliance for Hispanic Health & other partners

Tobacco Prevention

How can we embed equity in the process of developing smokefree policies in our communities?

What key lessons can we learn from smokefree policy efforts that are driven by community partnership?

The National Alliance for Hispanic Health and ChangeLab Solutions hosted a webinar that explores how local smokefree policymaking can . . .

  • Be built by (rather than for) the communities that will be served;
  • Be driven by community priorities;
  • Center community strengths;
  • Incorporate community partnerships and guidance at all stages; and
  • Ensure that enforcement of policies — for example, in housing and in workplaces — supports individuals instead of causing unintentional harm.

The panelists discuss examples of how Hispanic community partnerships have contributed to successful, equitable smokefree policy campaigns.
