Regional Advocates Countering Tobacco (REACT)

Who We Are

Created through funding from the California Department of Public Health – Tobacco Control Program, ReACT implements a tri-county tobacco control plan aimed at reducing and preventing tobacco use and decreasing exposure to secondhand smoke in the counties of Tulare, Kings, and Fresno.

Our Objectives

(1) Increasing youth and young adult participation in tobacco control efforts through authentic engagement in advocacy activities in the tri-county region

2) Assisting communities in the tricounty region through the adoption and implementation of public policies that:

  • a) restrict the sale and distribution of tobacco products, including electronic cigarettes, 1000 ft from schools and other youth sensitive areas,
  • b) eliminate the sale of all flavored and mentholated tobacco products or
  • c) eliminate the use of all tobacco products, including electronic cigarettes, in outdoor recreational areas, such as parks, skate parks, or trails
