Tobacco Control Advocacy

Help create a tobacco-free future for today’s children.


Numerous tobacco control victories — such as Smoke-Free Chicago, the Smoke-Free Illinois Act, flavored tobacco restrictions, Tobacco 21 ordinances and more — have been achieved thanks to the help of dedicated advocates, but there is more work to be done.

Join the E-Advocacy Team

You can help continue the steady progress in reducing the toll of tobacco use in your community, Illinois and across the nation. Join other volunteers, community members and RHA staff as we work to advocate for policies that protect the air we breathe and improve the lives of people affected by lung disease.

Make your voice heard! RHA will notify you via action alert emails when your phone calls, letters, and/or emails to elected and government officials are needed. We’ll share pertinent talking points and instructions, including how to access your officials and their contact information. You can accompany RHA staff on local visits and attend our State Lung Health Education Day in the spring.
