Upcoming

2020 Tobacco Free Mass Policy Forum

Tobacco Free Mass’ Policy Forum will be held online on November 19, 2020.

Last year, Tobacco Free Mass members led the passage of landmark tobacco legislation that banned the sale of menthol tobacco products, taxed vapes, and increased access to tobacco cessation.

Now, Tobacco Free Mass is bringing together the people who made it happen: local public health officials, lobbyists, activists, legal experts, and legislators to talk about what they did to pass the law… and what’s next.

Registration is now open!
