Coalition for a Tobacco-Free San Bernardino County

Mission

The Coalition for a Tobacco-Free San Bernardino County is a group of community representatives who want to make a difference, and are dedicated to preventing and reducing tobacco use through empowerment, mobilization, education, advocacy, and coordination at the local and state levels. The Coalition consists of a variety of organizations, governmental agencies, and volunteers from San Bernardino County that gather to improve the health and well-being of the community, in particular, the needs of underserved and underrepresented groups that are disproportionately affected by tobacco products. The Coalition works to achieve health equity through the use of a social and racial justice lens in our policy efforts to not create further inequities.

Goal

To eliminate the death, disease and health care costs caused by tobacco products in San Bernardino County through advocacy, education, and policy. The Coalition will act as a champion for tobacco-control related issues within San Bernardino County, and will cultivate partnerships that promote the mission of the Coalition. Through these efforts, the Coalition will strive to empower local communities so they can become the leaders in tobacco control within their own neighborhood.

Meetings

The Coalition meets the second Thursday of every other month from 1-3 p.m. In accordance with the COVID 19 crises, meetings are being conducted via Zoom. Once meetings resume in person, they will be held in San Bernardino at 301 E. Vanderbilt Way, Suite 150 San Bernardino, CA 92408.
