Pittsgrove, New Jersey: Anti-Tobacco Club Uses Outdoor Movie as Rally Point
Part of REBELS mission is not only to reach out and educate their peers about the dangers of using tobacco and the lies that Big Tobacco uses to market to youth but also, to encourage schools to adopt a Comprehensive Tobacco Free School Policy. "Grease cited specific examples of Comprehensive Tobacco Free School Policy violations. It proved that the more accepted smoking is the more likely students are to be persuaded into using tobacco," Jessie Salerno, 17 of Salem County said.
Salerno serves as a representative for Salem, Gloucester and Cumberland Counties on the Council of Nine which is a leadership board representing the nine regions in this statewide movement. "Our Tri-County event was a great opportunity for our three counties to get together, in a fun, tobacco awareness environment, and enjoy and learn from a classic musical."
