Advocacy

Advocacy

Advocacy resources are intended to assist Regional Pennsylvania Tobacco-Free Coalition (RPTFC) members and residents with tobacco control advocacy and public policy throughout Pennsylvania. The RPTFC partners with the Pennsylvania Alliance to Control Tobacco (PACT) to ensure that we have the resources needed to advocate for tobacco control issues.
Pennsylvania Alliance to Control Tobacco (PACT)

The Pennsylvania Alliance to Control Tobacco (PACT), under the American Lung Association in Pennsylvania, is a statewide coalition that educates the public and elected officials about clean indoor air, tobacco taxes, and other critical tobacco control issues. PACT is primarily funded by a grant through the Pennsylvania Department of Health. Members of PACT include tobacco control advocates, healthcare professionals, government agencies, community leaders, business owners, and the general public. Visit PACT’s website for additional information: www.pactonline.org
