National African American Tobacco Prevention Network’s No Menthol Sunday
May 18, 2019 - May 19, 2019
No Menthol Sunday, a national observance day led by the National African American Tobacco Prevention Network (NAATPN), Inc. is an important opportunity to engage faith leaders and their communities in a discussion about how to improve health outcomes for African Americans. Tobacco is still the number one killer of African Americans, and people of faith can play a major role in changing this.
We act justly by fighting for policies that equally offer everyone the privilege of optimal health—especially as it relates to tobacco. We commend the Food and Drug Administration’s recent proposal to ban mentholated cigarettes, but NAATPN, in partnership with communities across the country, has been working toward this for decades. We have always been a step ahead concerning this issue because this has always been the just thing to do.Pledge to participate and get the 2019 Toolkit
