In this episode, we are talking about advocacy through the eyes of youth. On May 16-19th, youth groups and organizations from around the country came together in-person in Washington D.C. to meet each other, participate in activities, learn more about the tobacco industry, and rally against one of the largest tobacco companies, Altria. One of these groups is Reality Check out of New York, who organizes this Mobilize Against Tobacco Lies (MATL) event each year. During this event last month, participating youth spoke out against tobacco industry targeting and made it known they will not stand for this through their advocacy efforts. You will hear more about this example of youth who are making a difference during this episode.
