THE LOUISIANA CAMPAIGN FOR TOBACCO-FREE LIVING

The Louisiana Campaign for Tobacco-Free Living (TFL) evaluates and implements tobacco control initiatives that can reduce and prevent tobacco use, to help Louisianans lead healthier lives. We also aim to eliminate exposure to secondhand smoke in public spaces and workplaces, because everyone deserves the opportunity to work without putting their health at risk.

WE’RE ALWAYS EVALUATING OUR PROGRESS

A core group of staff implements TFL, coordinating to ensure its effectiveness and evaluating its progress. The Louisiana Cancer Research Center (LCRC) funds these efforts.

TFL IS DRIVEN BY THESE CORE GOALS

  • To prevent Louisiana’s youth from beginning to use tobacco
  • To eliminate exposure to secondhand smoke
  • To promote tobacco cessation among youth and young adults
  • To identify and eliminate tobacco-related disparities
  • To facilitate effective coordination of all tobacco control and prevention initiatives statewide 

REAL PROGRESS IS BEING MADE

Several Louisiana Colleges and Universities are now tobacco-free, smoke-free city- and parish-wide ordinances are being enacted every day and many other tobacco-free triumphs are happening across the state we are proudly supporting.

OUR EFFORTS WON’T STOP UNTIL LOUISIANA IS TOBACCO-FREE
