Join Us for the 2024 Day at the Capitol!

Join us for the 2024 Day at the Capitol on May 7, 2024. Lung health advocates from across the Commonwealth will unite at the Pennsylvania State Capitol in Harrisburg to engage with legislators and advocate for critical tobacco control issues statewide.

This year, our primary advocacy focuses include educating legislators on the significance of comprehensive clean indoor air policies and increasing Master Settlement Agreement (MSA) dollars. Additionally, our TRU participants are highlighting the importance of Stock Albuterol in schools.

Following morning legislative visits, both participants and the general public are welcome to attend our press conference, marking the conclusion of the Day at the Capitol festivities. Attendees will have the opportunity to hear from lung health experts, our TRU Ambassadors, and learn more about the importance of tobacco prevention and control programming in Pennsylvania.
