Kick Butts Day underway to fight smoking
Go out and kick some butt!
Wednesday is Kick Butts Day—a national day of activism that urges young people to take action against tobacco companies across the country. The event is the 17th annual of its kind.
“As a teacher, youth leader, or health advocate, you can organize these events and mobilize students to raise awareness about the problems of tobacco use in your school or community,” the event’s website said.
As part of the national effort, the Kick Butts initiative provided an online activity guide that anyone can download that suggests different activities to mark the day. The activities vary from creating a pledge/graffiti/memorial wall to holding an anti-tobacco rally.
There are several events and resources available for Virginia and Maryland.
