A tobacco control coalition called Los Angeles Tobacco Prevention Network (LATPN) was established to advocate for smoke-free policies in California. The coalition collaborated with other community organizations, engaged youth and adult leaders, and successfully influenced city council to support and prioritize smoke-free policies, while educating the public about the harmful effects of the tobacco industry.
CPACS formed a youth task force to advocate for tobacco policy change through work with policymakers, partnerships with national nonprofits, and the local tobacco control GATE coalition. Engaging youth in policy initiatives allowed for greater community support for smoke-free ordinance passage and legislative change.
