Resist - Fighting the influence of Big Tobacco

Resist is a youth-led, statewide movement created to fight against the tobacco industry's influence on Kansans.

Resist advocates for the de-normalization of tobacco use among Kansas' youth and unites communities to create one voice to stand up against the tobacco industry. Youth not only participate in tobacco control prevention activities structured by this program, but they also help design and implement them utilizing the Center for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC) Best Practices for Youth Engagement. This program was designed to influence both the state and local levels of tobacco control and prevention.

Resist is sponsored in part by the Kansas Department of Health and Environment
