VIRTUAL DAY AT THE CAPITOL 2021

 

Tuesday, May 4

Join advocates across Pennsylvania as we come together virtually to meet with legislators to advocate for crucial tobacco control issues throughout the Commonwealth. During this virtual event, youth & adult lung health advocates alike will unite to educate state legislators on the Master Settlement Agreement (MSA) funding and why it is so essential to tobacco cessation & prevention programs, as well as the importance of clean indoor air especially during the pandemic.

Make your voice heard, from the comfort of your home!

Advocacy Training

No advocacy experience? No problem! You can have a huge impact during Day at the Capitol even if it’s your first advocacy event. Plus, we’ll be offering an advocacy training webinar for anyone who wants to learn how to be an effective advocate.

Legislative Visits

Students are invited to engage with state legislators to share how they’ve been affected by tobacco or e-cigarettes and why TRU matters to them.

You’ll have the chance to listen to lung health experts discuss a variety of hot topics, hear from one of our very own TRU youth, and learn more about the importance of tobacco prevention and control programming in PA.
