Milton Nguyen

2021 Barrie Fiske National Youth Advocate of the Year
Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids
Elk Grove, CA

Milton was motivated to get involved in tobacco prevention by his grandfather, a life-long tobacco user. He quickly realized the power of his voice to make a difference for the health of his community and peers. A passionate, driven and effective advocate, Milton’s work has spanned the local, state and national levels.

Milton has never let his age limit his capabilities. Highlights include testifying before the Sacramento City Council in support of legislation to end the sale of flavored tobacco products (successfully passed), rallying youth for a large virtual tobacco education event (Youth Quest 2021), and being one of the first high school students to intern with Action on Smoking & Health (a partner in the tobacco prevention movement).

Milton is an irreplaceable Voice in the Fight for the first tobacco-free generation. As the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids celebrates our 25th anniversary and 25 years of youth advocacy, he embodies the qualities of a new generation of leaders who are fighting with us for a healthier and more equitable future.
