Reality Check LI

Reality Check LI is the youth action component of the Tobacco Action Coalition of LI which is funded by a grant from the NYS Department of Health’s Bureau of Tobacco Control administered by the American Lung Association. Reality Check is a state-wide, youth led initiative that focuses on educating and empowering youth to address the tobacco industry and their deceptive marketing practices. Reality Check LI provides opportunities for youth to gain skills in leadership, team building, media and public speaking. The youth perspective and voice is important in creating sustainable change in our communities.
