    Press Release

    SACRAMENTO, CA (July 28, 2022) – This morning, a coalition of Black legislators, doctors, public health advocates and activists came together to take a stand against Big Tobacco and their predatory tactics toward communities of color. A press conference was held to raise awareness around Proposition 31, which would save countless lives by eliminating the sale of flavored tobacco throughout California.

    A statement from Erica Costa, Advocacy Director for the American Lung Association in California:

    “We know that the tobacco industry has long targeted communities of color, and the LGBTQ+ community. Proposition 31 seeks to end the sale of flavored products, including menthol. Voting yes on this measure would save lives and protect young people from getting hooked on nicotine. We strongly encourage voters to vote YES on Proposition 31 this November so that these deadly products are remove from shelves for good.
