Program Overview

The Regional Advocates Countering Tobacco (ReACT) Program was created through funding support from the California Department of Public Health Tobacco Control Program. ReACT implements a tri-county tobacco control plan aimed at reducing and preventing tobacco use and decreasing exposure to secondhand smoke in Fresno, Tulare and Kings Counties.

The ReACT Program work plan includes the following objectives:

  1. Youth Engagement: To recruit at least 15 youth in Fresno, Kings, and Tulare Counties to form the Tobacco-Free Youth Coalition.

  2. Smoke-Free Public Venues: At least six incorporated cities in Fresno, Kings, and Tulare Counties will adopt and implement a policy that eliminates the use of all tobacco products, including electronic cigarettes, in outdoor venues such as parks, fairgrounds, playgrounds and other recreational public venues.

  3. Zoning:  One jurisdiction will adopt a conditional use permit or other land use regulation to prohibit the location of tobacco retail outlets within 1,000 feet of youth sensitive areas and/or limit the number of retailers within city limits.

I HRT U Youth Coalition

The ReACT program works with youth from all over the tri-county region. Youth coalition members are an essential part of program initiatives. ReACT empowers young people to create policy change in their local communities by training youth. This is done through participation in local and statewide trainings and events including: Youth Quest, an annual Youth Leadership Summit, and various trainings for public speaking, data collections, developing public service announcements and becoming program spokespersons. I HRT U stands for Improving Health by Reducing Tobacco Use.
