Everyone has the right to breathe smokefree indoor air

About New Jersey Breathes


New Jersey Breathes is a coalition of organizations from public, private, government and non-profit sectors interested in decreasing tobacco use in New Jersey. New Jersey Breathes has been especially effective in gaining public support for anti- tobacco initiatives, including the Smokefree Air Act and several increases in the cigarette tax.

In spite of this success, tobacco use remains a serious health and economic issue in New Jersey.  But instead of increasing funds to combat tobacco use, state funding for tobacco prevention and control was completely eliminated from Governor Christie’s FY 2011 budget. 

New Jersey Breathes is working to restore this money and continue to improve the health and the economy of our state with anti-tobacco initiatives.  These organizations have joined New Jersey Breathes in this effort.  Please join us in our campaign!
