More than 100 teens from across Rhode Island recently marched on the State House to call on leaders to increase the sale age for tobacco products from 18 to 21.

Teens participating at Zombie Walk

The event was held in conjunction with National Kick Butts Day. The teens were dressed as zombies and used their creativity to show how tobacco use can disfigure and kill. In addition to talking about #Tobacco21RI, the teens asked lawmakers to take additional steps to help prevent tobacco-related disease and deaths.

The American Heart Association is proud to lead #Tobacco21RI efforts in collaboration with our partner organizations. We applaud our youth for getting engaged and making their voices heard!
