The Center for Tobacco Policy & Organizing is a project of the American Lung Association in California and funded by the California Department of Public Health, Tobacco Control Section. The Center assists local communities to address tobacco related policies using community organizing strategies, and provides policy information and analysis regarding tobacco related legislation and policy issues.
For 100 years, the American Lung Association has been the lead organization working to prevent lung disease and promote lung health. Lung disease death rates continue to increase while other leading causes of death have declined. The American Lung Association funds vital research on the causes of and treatments for lung disease. With the generous support of the public, the American Lung Association is “Improving life, one breath at a time.” For more information about the American Lung Association or to support the work it does, call 1.800.LUNG.USA (1.800.586.4872) or visit www.californialung.org or www.lung.org.
