Summary
Kick Butts Day involves more than 1,000 events in schools and communities across the United States and even around the world.

Kick Butts Day is a day of activism that empowers youth to stand out, speak up and seize control against Big Tobacco.

On Kick Butts Day, teachers, youth leaders and health advocates organize events to:

  • Raise awareness of the problem of tobacco use in their state or community;
  • Encourage youth to reject the tobacco industry's deceptive marketing and stay tobacco-free; and
  • Urge elected officials to take action to protect kids from tobacco.

Kick Butts Day is organized by the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids. The first Kick Butts Day was held in 1996.
