Smokefree Efforts Spread across Alabama

by Julie H. on Wednesday, June 11, 2014

On June 10, 2014 the Gadsden City Council voted 4-1 in favor of the City of Gadsden Smokefree Air Ordinance. The ordinance creates smokefree public areas in the city including bars and lounges, and set limits for how close to public entrances smoking would be allowed. The ordinance will go into effect on January 1, 2015. Read more in this Gadsden Times article and stay updated on local efforts via Facebook.

Right now, serious conversations also are taking place in Montgomery about the effects of secondhand smoke. If you live in Montgomery, here are some ways you can help:

  • Join the conversation on Facebook
  • Attend the June 19th Addiction Inc. Screening Social at ASU's Hardy Center; click here to RSVP
  • Invite a representative of the Smokefree Montgomery campaign to attend your community organization or neighborhood association event; contact Stephanie Christie at smokefreemontgomery@heart.org

As you can tell, exciting smokefree work is taking place in our communities to protect residents from the hazards of secondhand smoke - and we're counting on You're the Cure advocates to help!
