Mobilizing the Faith Community to Save Lives
Leaders from multiple religious denominations have launched a national campaign — Faith United Against Tobacco — to mobilize the faith community to support proven solutions to reduce smoking.
Religious leaders have long played a critical role in addressing the nation's social challenges, especially in protecting children and other vulnerable people. Helping to reduce tobacco use, the leading preventable cause of disease and death in the United States, is a natural extension of these efforts. The faith community can be a powerful force in protecting our children and reducing the terrible toll of tobacco.
Some of the faith-based organizations participating in this campaign include United Methodist, Presbyterian, United Church of Christ, National Council of Churches, Seventh Day Adventists, American Muslim Foundation, Southern Baptist Convention, Commission on Social Action of Reform Judaism, Church Women United, Church of the Brethren and Islamic Society of North America.
