DAY AT THE CAPITOL 2020
Join us in Harrisburg, PA on May 5th! REGISTER by Tuesday, April 14th.
Hundreds of TRU members from across Pennsylvania rally together with adult lung health advocates at the State Capitol in Harrisburg to speak with their lawmakers about current tobacco control issues, such as tobacco prevention and control funding (MSA Funding). They also get to participate in fun activities such as a scavenger hunt and have the chance to win cool prizes!
Thanks to the hard work of our advocates last year in 2019, Pennsylvania passed Tobacco 21! Now, Tobacco 21 is a federal law. Join hundreds of other students this year on May 5, 2020 and help us advocate for other important tobacco control issues and speak with state legislators about critical topics such as the e-cigarette epidemic and Master Settlement Agreement (MSA) Funding.
