Statewide Anti-tobacco Initiatives and Campaign
The focus of IBE's anti-tobacco program is to educate the public on the dangers of tobacco use and the perils of second hand smoke. IBE efforts in part vie to show how tobacco products are targeted and marketed to young people – particularly in the black and brown communities. IBE partners with Smoke-Free and Tobacco-Free Indy to urge school systems, businesses, multi-housing units, clinics and organizations throughout the state to adopt smoke free policies. Tobacco users who are ready to quit can obtain coaching and resources from 1-800-QUIT-NOW. Web-based and text coaching is also available to youth and pregnant women.
