WHO WE ARE
NYC Smoke-Free, a program of Public Health Solutions, works to protect the health of New Yorkers through tobacco control policy, advocacy, and education. Formerly the NYC Coalition for a Smoke-Free City, we partner with community members, legislators, and health advocates to support local efforts to end the devastating tobacco epidemic throughout NYC. We believe every New Yorker has the right to breathe clean, smoke-free air where they live, work and play.
WHAT WE DO
Reduce access to tobacco products and limit tobacco industry marketing to youth.
Increase the number of smoke-free outdoor spaces, including neighborhood parks, grounds and entryways.
Increase the number of apartment buildings, co-ops and condos that are 100% smoke-free.
Reduce pro-tobacco imagery from youth rated movies and internet.
