Take a Stand Against Big Tobacco

Tobacco use is the number-one preventable cause of death in the United States, killing more than 480,000 people every year.

We need to stop the problem where it starts: the tobacco industry. From preventing youth tobacco use to advocating for policy change, every dollar you donate today will help stop Big Tobacco once and for all.

Advocacy Saves Lives

We’re at a critical moment in ending tobacco-related deaths: prohibiting menthol cigarettes. For generations, the tobacco industry has deliberately marketed menthol cigarettes to Black, Brown, youth and LGBTQIA+ communities – resulting in higher rates of initiation, disease and death.

While we're doing everything we can to advocate for laws and rules that will save lives, the tobacco industry is doing everything it can to protect its profits. It's a constant battle and we need your support.

Quitting isn’t easy, but you can help

Once menthol cigarettes are prohibited, hundreds of thousands of people will want help quitting tobacco.

Donate now to support our tobacco cessation programs, like Freedom From Smoking, which has helped people quit for 40 years and is considered one of the most effective programs in the country.
