Save the Date!! Kick Butts Day 3/20/17!!

Save the Date!! Kick Butts Day is March 20, 2017!

Kick Butts Day is a national day of activism that empowers youth to stand-up, speak-out, and seize control against Big Tobacco. Thousands of youth will be participating in activities across the nation.

The Hawai‘i Public Health Institute’s (HIPHI) Kick Butts Day event will focus on “#BreatheAloha” – supporting smoke-free vehicles when a minor is present. This measure protects Hawai‘i’s keiki from the dangers of inhaling secondhand smoke in vehicles. Secondhand smoke in cars is ten times more toxic, even when a window is down.

The day begins at 9:00 am and will end at approximately 3:00 pm.  We will meet at St. Andrew’s School from 9:00 am to 11:00 am.  Activities at the Capitol begin at 11:30 am with sign-waving in front of the Capitol. Youth participants will then be meeting with legislators. These short visits are an opportunity for Hawaii’s youth to engage with their legislators and share what matters most to them.
