TOBACCO PROGRAM: VOICE
Research shows that youth who start smoking early are more likely to be addicted to tobacco for the rest of their lives. Therefore, it is important that Latino youth learn about the dangers of tobacco at an early age. The Indiana Latino Institute, Inc. has involved Latino youth in VOICE, Indiana’s youth-led movement to fight big tobacco companies. Indiana’s youth is tired of tobacco companies’ sly marketing techniques that encourage them to begin a financially draining and physically detrimental addiction to tobacco products. The VOICE movement is a way for the youth to organize and inform their peers, and the rest of the community about the harmful effects of tobacco use and to expose the truth about the tobacco companies. The Latino VOICE movement is working in Hamilton, Lake, Marion, Porter, and Tippecanoe Counties.
