Kick Butts Day Encourages Youth to Avoid Tobacco

For Immediate Release:  March 14, 2014

 
Kick Butts Day, an annual day of activism sponsored by the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids, will be held Wednesday, March 19. The event is one of more than 2,000 held around the country to raise awareness about the problems of tobacco use in schools and the community and to empower youth to take action against tobacco use. Mayor Euille will kick off the event at 3:30 p.m. at T.C. Williams High School, 3330 King St.

On Kick Butts Day this year, the Substance Abuse Prevention Coalition of Alexandria, in partnership with the Campagna Center and the Alexandria Department of Recreation, Parks and Cultural Activities, is sponsoring an Operation Storefront Survey, which will engage more than 30 Alexandria youth in collecting information on how retail stores advertise tobacco products and alcohol.

SAPCA is an alliance of parents, youth, schools, City health and recreation agencies, media, nonprofits, businesses, policymakers and law enforcement whose mission is to engage diverse sectors of the community in collaborative, cross-cultural and comprehensive substance abuse prevention efforts that result in a reduction of underage substance use and abuse in the City of Alexandria.

For more information about the Kick Butts Day event and Operation Storefront Survey, visit www.preventitalexandria.org or contact Noraine Buttar at noraine.buttar@alexandriava.gov or 703.746.3670.
