About





"Our mission is to promote health equity and social justice by supporting a diverse alliance of partnerships to help protect Alameda County residents by eliminating the threats of tobacco use and exposure."

 

The Alameda County Tobacco Control Coalition (ACTCC) is comprised of over 200 individuals, organizations and advocates for the prevention, reduction, and control of tobacco use. The ACTCC is committed to the de-normalization of tobacco use in Alameda County. Tobacco kills nearly 40,000 Californians each year; 10 years earlier than had they not used tobacco. The state of California spends nearly $22 billion a year in health care bills and lost productivity due to tobacco related health problems.


Tobacco Free Alameda County is the County’s leading source on tobacco-related news, support and resources on tobacco prevention and policy. This website provides information to residents, tools for policy makers and an opportunity for supporters to help advance the smoke-free movement. Find out what places are smoke-free, how to report a violation, get help to quit smoking or learn how to protect yourself from secondhand smoke drifting into your home.
