The Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids (CTFK) offers a wealth of information and advice.  CTFK helps change public attitudes and public policies on tobacco and vaping to prevent kids from smoking or vaping, to help them quit, and to protect everyone from secondhand smoke or vape aerosol. CTFK also sponsors Kick Butts Day, a national day to inspire youth to speak up against Big Tobacco, which young people from Massachusetts participate in each year.

About the Get Outraged Campaign

Get Outraged is a public information campaign in Massachusetts to bring attention to the tactics that the tobacco and vaping industries use to hook their next generation of customers: our kids. It’s first iteration was focused on flavored tobacco products, called “Big Tobacco is Sweet Talking Our Kids.” In the following years, it evolved into “The New Look of Nicotine Addiction.” In 2021, we launched a new version of Get Outraged, which focuses on how the industries try to coverup the fact that there is nicotine in vaping devices.
