What is Kick Butts Day?

Kick Butts Day is a day of activism that empowers youth to stand out, speak up and seize control against Big Tobacco at more than 1,000 events planned by independent organizers across the United States and around the world. www.kickbuttsday.org

Why is Kick Butts Day Important?

1,500 kids under the age of 18 in Kansas become daily smokers each year, if this trend continues, 61,000 kids alive now under the age of 18 in Kansas will ultimately die prematurely from smoking. It’s time to #finishit and become the first #tobaccofreegeneration.
