STRATEGIES & INITIATIVES
Making positive change in our communities is challenging and rewarding. While there are many ways to tackle this work, these key ingredients will help make your efforts more successful: informed partners, access to education and resources, consistent and persistent messaging, and clear and strategic action.
Tobacco and nicotine continue to be drivers for fatal health issues, reduced quality of life, and challenging addiction. Proponents for their use have strong marketing tactics and budgets, and continue to target vulnerable members of our community – including our youth.
At TFRI, we are focused on delivering the tools, information, strategies and expert testimony to anyone (communities, decision makers, agencies, individuals) working to create a Tobacco Free Environment in Rhode Island. In these pages, you’ll find information about specific tobacco free issues and the strategies around them to influence positive change. Use these pages to get informed and educated on the issues, and then visit the Tools for Impact section to find ways to take action.
