The 22nd annual Kick Butts Day, a day of national activism, will be held this year on March 15. Organized by the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids, Kick Butts Day encourages and empowers youth to stand up, speak out, and seize control against tobacco.
The Barry Tobacco Reduction Coalition hosted an event last year at the skate park in Hastings where youth and adult advocates joined together to install a “graffiti” wall.
This year, the group is posting the graffiti wall design on their social media outlets and proposing the question, “What quit-tobacco method worked for you?”.
The group hopes to gather responses from the community, which will help the group with their efforts to encourage both youth and adult tobacco users to quit.
