ANR Foundation Partners with CityHealth

ANRF worked with our partners CityHealth to write a blog post in recognition of April being National Healthy Homes Month. The post raises awareness about how cities can support healthy housing policies that improve residents’ health and well-being, especially by expanding the availablity of smokefree multi-unit housing. May is National Asthma Awareness Month which is another opportune time to highlight the need for smokefree housing, since breathing secondhand smoke is a key asthma trigger for both children and adults. As stated in the blog post, everyone, regardless of housing circumstances, deserves to have a stable and healthy living environment, including the right to breathe smoke-free air at home. Residents of multi-unit housing shouldn’t have to suffer serious health risks from secondhand smoke drifting from neighbors’ units.

American Nonsmokers’ Rights Foundation (ANRF) is a 501c3 non-profit educational and advocacy group that has been working for over 40 years to protect everyone’s right to breathe nontoxic air in workplaces and public places, from offices and airplanes to restaurants, bars, and casinos. ANRF has continuously shined a light on the tobacco industry’s interference with sound and life-saving public health measures and successfully protected 61% of the population with local or statewide smokefree workplace, restaurant, and bar laws. ANRF aims to close gaps in smokefree protections for workers in all workplaces, including bars, music venues, casinos, and hotels. For more information, please visit ANRF projects include and
