Queens Smoke-Free Partnership
WHO WE ARE
The Queens Smoke-Free Partnership is a health advocacy group that increases awareness of tobacco control issues in the borough of Queens among community members and policy makers. Partnering with the community, legislators, and health advocates, we support neighborhood-based efforts for effective and long term change throughout the borough of Queens. We are funded through grants from the Department of Health and Human Services and the New York State Department of Health.
WHAT WE DO
- Reduce access to tobacco products and limit tobacco industry marketing to youth.
- Increase the number of smoke-free outdoor spaces, including parks, beaches, and entryways.
- Increase the number of apartment buildings, co-ops and condos that are 100% smoke-free.
- Engage community partners to build support for policy campaigns.
