TFW Youth – RESIST

TFW is looking for passionate young people (ages 11-18) to join our RESIST Chapter and help us TAKE DOWN BIG TOBACCO!

WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE A RESIST MEMBER?

RESIST is a youth-led, statewide movement that fights the tobacco industry’s influence on Kansas teens. Local RESIST members will join hundreds of Kansas teens in the fight to stop Big Tobacco’s dirty tricks that lead kids into becoming the next tobacco users. TFW RESIST youth will lead efforts in the community to take tobacco out of our parks and schools and make it harder for young people to buy products. Each member will complete advocacy trainings from the Campaign for Tobacco Free Kids to learn new skills that will help them develop   focused messaging, work with local media, talk to elected officials, and create fun, impactful events.
