Overcoming Tobacco Industry Opposition

Understanding veiled threats

Tobacco Prevention

In the past year, we have seen a renewed effort by groups opposing local tobacco control laws throughout California.

This webinar provides an overview of these opposition groups, the tactics they have been using across the state, and ways communities can combat them by using policy and organizing efforts. The webinar also addresses the facts about their claims and provides advocates with effective counterarguments.

Presenters share their experiences and are from the American Lung Association in California's Center for Tobacco Policy & Organizing, ChangeLab Solutions, the City of Manhattan Beach, the City of Berkeley, and the Sonoma County Department of Health Services.
