Seen Enough Tobacco

ALBANY, N.Y. – Youth in this region have seen enough tobacco promotions. It’s time to protect them and put an end to youth smoking and other tobacco use. That’s the message Tobacco Free New York State is working hard to communicate to millions regionally and statewide with its “Seen Enough Tobacco” campaign.

With the goal of safeguarding children from the billions of dollars of hard-hitting tobacco promotions in places where they can see them, the campaign uses video, social media (#SeenEnoughTobacco), digital advertising and a “Jack and Jill (and Tobacco)” storybook that describes children’s encounters with tobacco promotions in convenience stores. Provocative images creatively combine cigarettes with common children’s items, like crayons, a birthday cake and a crib mobile, in scenarios intended to grab the attention of community members and parents and prompt their outrage. Viewers can learn what they can do to protect children from tobacco promotions and join more than 15,000 others throughout the state by pledging their support at the campaign’s website www.SeenEnoughTobacco.org.

9-11 We Will Never Forget

It is now 12 years later and we all can remember where we were when we heard this devastating news.

The shock, the fear, the lives that were lost.

 During that day we all stood tall together and will continue to fight for our freedom as one nation.

9-11NeverForget

I am not only proud to be an American but I am also proud to be a New Yorker!

I am thankful to all those who continue to save the lives of us New Yorkers each day. All the men and women that put their lives at risk to protect ours, I thank you.

Today is a day of remembrance of all the lives that were lost, we will never forget you.

New York will continue to stay strong and the Freedom Tower is a symbol of that.
