This online Clearing the Air series is designed to provide timely research and policy information, resources, and tools, and to set an agenda to close gaps in smokefree protections in every city and state. American Nonsmokers’ Rights Foundation started this virtual series in October 2021 and a total of 10 webinars in were held between then and November 2022. In 2023, the series will occur bi-monthly on the second Wednesday of the month.
What to Expect
Each session will last an hour, with an additional 30 minute, non-recorded “after show” option to stay on the call for further brainstorming and questions/answers. Sessions will focus on a specific issue or topic, including current campaigns, emerging issues, organizing tools, resources, and strategies honed over the years or from recent campaign experiences, all designed to help the movement continue to make progress and to maintain the gain. The first few session topics have been selected; however, we are open to your suggestions for future topics that would be helpful to you, your partners, and your grassroots constituents.
This second series of webinars will kick off with NJ campaign updates. Future webinars will focus on hot topics and current campaigns of interest for information, inspiration, and sharing lessons learned from other states, localities and/or Tribes. The goal is to provide a learning experience to help us close gaps in smokefree protections and to maintain the gains we have made to protect worker and public health.
