Join the Movement for “Smoke-Free Week in New Orleans” July 21-25, 2014
The Office of Councilmember LaToya Cantrell and the Healthier Air for All Campaign (HAFA), an initiative of the Louisiana Campaign for Tobacco-Free Living (TFL), are working together to promote the benefits of smoke-free environments by sponsoring Smoke-Free Week, July 21-25, 2014, in New Orleans.
Smoke-Free Week is a health initiative designed to raise awareness on the risks that secondhand smoke exposure poses, particularly to New Orleans bar employees, patrons, and musicians’. Service industry and gaming facility employees, along with musicians, breathe more secondhand smoke while at work than any other type of employee, and can suffer from many of the same illnesses as smokers.
Smoke-Free Week will kick-off on July 21st from 6-8 p.m. at The Rusty Nail bar, a smoke-free bar located in the Central Business District. Community members are encouraged to join Councilwoman Cantrell and HAFA, as well as the 610 Stompers, for entertainment and healthier air all night long.
Local Youth, TFL, Senator Gallot and Rep. Hoffmann Host Capitol Press Conference In Recognition of Kick Butts Day 2014
In recognition of today’s 19th annual Kick Butts Day (KBD), Representative Frank Hoffmann, Senator Rick Gallot, The Louisiana Campaign for Tobacco-Free Living (TFL) and a number of youth from across Louisiana stood up to tobacco companies who continue to target those under age at the Capitol building today.
Louisiana’s teen tobacco usage rates remain higher than the national average, with approximately 38.3 percent of high school and 15.6 percent of middle school students in Louisiana using tobacco, according to the 2011 National Youth Tobacco Survey (NYTS). Additionally, across our state anyone under the age of 18 can purchase electronic nicotine devices because they are not regulated. In fact, there has been an increase in the sale, advertisement and marketing of the electronic nicotine devices to youth in particular.
