LAYFTC members give presentations on flavored tobacco products to raise awareness on tobacco control issues. Our members attend middle schools to college universities to present to parents and youth. We also give out resources for quitting, how. to talk to your child if they smoke, and LAYFTC materials.
In an effort to show the community and City Council members of the impact of smoking in their school and neighborhood, students of Vista Charter Middle School created an art canvas for their message. The colored smoke monster represents all the different and colorful flavors of flavored tobacco and how unsuspecting it seems to the average student trying to be cool and "fit in".

Letter of Support
We give workshops on how a strong letter of support for policies that restrict flavored tobacco is written and submit them to the Los Angeles City Council to show support for tobacco control policies. If you are interested in learning how to write a strong letter of support and would like to submit one for the campaign, please contact us!
Public Comment; City Council
LAYFTC and community members attend City Council meetings to give public comment for their support for tobacco control policies. Our members also give personal experiences and how flavored tobacco product has impacted them. We give training for advocacy and public speaking for our members to prepare them to voice their thoughts to City Council members.
