Kick Butts Day at the Capitol

March 7 @ 9:30 am - 3:30 pm

Resist and the American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network are holding the second annual Kick Butts Day at the Capitol on March 7th, 2019!

2019/03/07 09:30:00

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.

Why is Kick Butts Day important?

1,200 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.

How can I get involved?

Register Today for Resist’s Kick Butts Day at the Capitol Event where youth advocates will get the opportunity to:

  • Stand up and speak out against Big Tobacco
  • Learn about advocacy and talking to decision makers
  • Speak with your local legislator at the statehouse
  • Learn more about Resist and meet other youth advocates from across the state
