    POWR Against Tobacco

    Mobilize Against Tobacco Lies] invites you to participate in the Mobilize Against Tobacco Lies (MATL) Social Event on October 30th!

    Theme: Tobacco’s Walking Dead - 5.6 million youth in the U.S. under 18 alive today will ultimately die from smoking (unless smoking rates decline).

    The Coalition for a Tobacco-Free Hawaii Youth Council invites you to wear a Walking Dead costume and get a head start on the Day of the Dead on Saturday October 30th. We challenge you to a costume contest and hope you will share your state's projections of youth deaths due to smoking on your social media accounts over the weekend.

    The main objective is to connect like minded youth from across the country and over the next several months.

    This will be the first in a series of social events leading up to more serious MATL training happening spring 2022.

    We hope that you will join us Saturday October 30th at:

    9:45 AM Hawaii Time
    12:45 PM Pacific Time
    2:45 PM Central Time
    3:45 PM Eastern Time

    The event will be on Zoom.
