Victory in the fight against cancer requires bold new public policies that promote cancer prevention, early detection of cancer, and expand access to quality, affordable health care.
Tobacco 21 for Anchorage passes 11-0
Great news! The Anchorage Assembly took a stand against Big Tobacco and voted 11-0 in favor of raising the age of sale for tobacco products in Anchorage from 19 to 21.
We wanted to extend a big THANK YOU to all of the volunteers like you who contacted the Assembly about supporting this public health effort, which promises to help save lives from a preventable death and protect youth from a lifetime addiction.
If you would like to send a “Thank you” note to the Anchorage Assembly for passing this important policy, simply send an email to [email protected] and all of the Assembly members will receive your message.
The Tobacco 21 ordinance goes into effect on August 20, 2019.
Thank you for your help in effecting a more positive future for Anchorage.
