Seen Enough Tobacco Day in Depew

October 13, 2017 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Free

On Friday, October 13 beginning at 2:00 p.m., Depew Reality Check students are taking a stand for Seen Enough Tobacco Action Day.

They’ve seen enough:

  • Bright colorful marketing messages in stores where kids shop; 72% of tobacco retail outlets in Depew are located within 1 mile of a school.
  • Tobacco industry tactics; In New York State, tobacco companies spend more than half million dollars EVERY DAY to place promotions where kids can see them.

In conjunction with the school’s Spirit Week, Reality Check students will create a pinwheel display, plus a sidewalk chalk display in front of school, to show the number of smokers who die in New York State every day from smoking. 

Lawn signs will also be placed near Transit Road for people to see the Seen Enough Tobacco logo and “Stores near schools display 3x the amount of tobacco advertisements.”  Students will also host an educational expo on tobacco marketing.

Come check out the action. And take action yourselves by calling your local elected officials and telling them to get tobacco out of sight in stores.
