Day at the Capitol was held on May 7th, 2019 at the Pennsylvania State Capitol in Harrisburg!
This one-day event, held in Harrisburg for individuals to come together and meet with legislators to provide education on important tobacco control issues throughout the Commonwealth. For the first time, nearly 700 youth and adult advocates rallied together at this event and it was highlighted in the media. The primary advocacy topics of focus will be to educate legislators on the importance of increasing the minimum sales age for tobacco products to 21 to eliminate or reduce youth tobacco initiation as well as sustaining Master Settlement Agreement (MSA) dollars to support necessary tobacco cessation and prevention programs and services.
