Annual Youth Forum

The Inaugural statewide forum’s theme is “UpRISE Youth Advocacy: Leveling up to Beat Big Tobacco”

On October 5, 2019 UpRISE with gather representatives from each coalition, Youth Action Board, Adult Advisory Board, and staff for the first time for a day of training and empowerment.

Year two of our movement will focus on preparing young people to meet with local decision–makers about the issues in their community they found to be root causes of tobacco use, and the annual forum will set up UpRISE youth for success.
