Students Unite for Tobacco Free Alameda

By Dolphin Tail staff

On November 17th, a group of 6th, 7th, and 8th graders volunteered to walk for the local action group, Tobacco Free Alameda, to get the word out about the dangers of children being targeted by the tobacco industry with tempting pictures of flavored tobacco products that look and taste like candy!

The students walked in teams covering dozens of neighborhoods along with students from many of the other middle and high schools in Alameda, hanging information on doors and talking to a number of people.

Because of their work, and the work of many others in our community, the Alameda City Council were moved to enact the strongest tobacco law in California on November 27th!  Way to go, Bay Farm Middle School activists!!
