Thank you for kicking butts!!!

Posted by Gustavo Torrez on 27 Mar 2018

Last week, thousands of youth and adults across the United States and around the world took action to stand out, speak up, and seize control against Big Tobacco. This was our 23rd annual Kick Butts Day, and we’re thrilled to announce it was also one of our biggest yet! The passion and creativity demonstrated by advocates like you was incredible, and we truly can’t thank you enough.


Our collective impact this year was huge. How huge?

  • Nearly 1,500 Kick Butts Day events in all 50 states and 5 different countries
  • 200+ news stories nationwide

Beyond the events themselves, tobacco-control advocates were incredibly active on social media, extending the reach of their events even further. Visit our #KickButtsDay gallery to see videos and images of advocates taking action all over the country!



Just because your event has come to an end doesn’t mean its impact has to! Check out our After the Event page to get some ideas on how you can follow up with the media, thank your attendees, and tell us about your event.

As great as Kick Butts Day in 2018 was, we know you’ll find a way to make 2019 even better. Kick Butts Day is officially held only one day every year, but we encourage you to keep kicking butts all year so we can make the next generation tobacco-free.
