"Kick Butts Day" Renamed - Updated Post

Kick Butts Day is now Take Down Tobacco National Day of Action

2020 marks the 25th Kick Butts Day — the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids’ national day of activism that empowers youth to stand out, speak up, and seize control against Big Tobacco.  Effective immediately, this program is now Take Down Tobacco – a 365-day effort with Take Down Tobacco National Day of Action as its premier annual event.

This year’s event will be held on March 18th.

There is a  a new website filled with resources to help you get involved right now. Local event registration is open, and activity kits are available while supplies last.


In light of public gatherings being canceled due to COVID-19, a #TakeDownTobacco Digital Power Wall has been created!

This tool allows you to tell the world why YOU are in this fight. In 10 seconds, you'll have a customized graphic that you can share on social media. Plus, your statement will be featured on a rolling display on the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids website. Event organizers will use the display to educate their peers and decision-makers about why we must protect kids by standing up to the tobacco and vaping industries.  

Plus, the Power Wall will take any Twitter or Instagram post that uses the hashtag #TakeDownTobacco – and will automatically put them on the display too.
