Throughout the year, all across our state, collective voices are come together to make a difference. The RAZE Crews from several schools in Wyoming County became a part of the rebellion against Big Tobacco in West Virginia by attending Tobacco Free Day at the Capitol.
On Tobacco Free Day, hundreds of RAZE Crews descended on the West Virginia State Capitol to celebrate their success and educate others on the importance of tobacco prevention.
This educational one-day event is an exciting way for Crews to connect with other members, have fun, and leave empowered with tactics and tools to tackle tobacco issues in their communities.
The Career Center Raze Crew from the Wyoming County Career and Technical Center participated in the event. Teen Advisory Council member, Demetrius Wilson from Jesse, accompanied the crew and participated in a news conference about the dangers of tobacco. Raze members visited booths and gathered tobacco-free brochures and other items to take back their schools. Students also had the opportunity to meet senators and House of Delegate representatives. The American Lung Association sponsored the event.
