Take Down Tobacco

Recognize "Take Down Tobacco" National Day of Action at your high school with a  “Take Down Tobacco Power Wall”.

Make a powerful visual impact and inspire others to join the fight by creating an interactive wall where people share their reason to #TakeDownTobacco

What is a Power Wall? 

To the tobacco industry, a "power wall" is a large display of tobacco products meant to entice potential buyers.

Power walls guarantee tobacco products are seen by every customer – especially youth.

With the #TakeDownTobacco Power Wall we are taking the power back by posting huge, eye-catching displays showing our personal reasons to #TakeDownTobacco.

Take Down Tobacco Power Wall Kits are available to schools and need ordered by 3/5/20 to participate in the event day on 3/18/20

Each kit contains the essentials to make a huge Power Wall of your own, but we encourage you to get creative.

How will you personalize your display to make it stand out?

We’ll be awarding prizes to the most creative display!
