We are excited to share an “Advocacy from Afar” toolkit developed by the YES! Asheville Youth Staff for Kick Butts Day 2019. Kick Butts Day is a national day of activism that empowers youth to stand out, speak up, and seize control against Big Tobacco. This year, Kick Butts Day will take place on Wednesday, March 20, 2019. This toolkit is meant to be used by youth teams across the country who want to engage in work around tobacco use prevention and specifically e-cigarette and Juul use.
It includes sample social media posts, graphics, templates for calling and emailing your representatives, and tips for adult allies to support youth-led advocacy.
If you decide to engage on social media, we would encourage you to tag us (@YES_forum) or use the hashtag #YES4Change. We hope you join us in participating in advocacy from afar for Kick Butts Day 2019.
