Stand in Faith Against Tobacco

Big Tobacco targets and harms our communities. In fact, tobacco is the number one cause of preventable death and disease.1 It’s time faith communities stand together against the tobacco industry. You and your faith-based group can take a leadership role by getting involved and continuing the fight against the tobacco industry.

How Can You Help Your Community?

Encourage Spiritual & Physical Wellness

Churches, synagogues, temples, mosques, and other houses of worship are natural centers for spiritual, emotional, and physical wellness.1 Encourage your faith group to be free of harmful tobacco.
