Who We Are: What We Do
We save lives with our work! This short video shows how our work is changing life for the better for people who are still working and living in secondhand smoke.
STAY SAFE AT HOME MUSIC SERIES
The American Nonsmokers’ Rights Foundation launched its Smokefree Music Cities (SFMC) project in October 2018 to raise awareness about musicians who were still forced to work in smoke-filled clubs, bars, and casinos. The project kicked off in smokefree Lafayette, Louisiana, during the Music Cities Convention. Several artists joined our movement and provided testimonials about their experiences playing in smoke-filled and smokefree environments and how it has impacted their health and ability to perform. Since quarantine began, SFMC has been working with individual musicians to continue to communicate with the public and policymakers about the benefits of performing in smokefree venues. SFMC launched the #StaySafeAtHome music series, a biweekly performance.
SMOKEFREE CASINOS SERIES
“Responsible Gaming?” “The Health and Safety of our Employees are our #1 Priority?” “Provide the most enjoyable entertainment experience for All our customers?”
These are phrases we’ve seen and heard from some of America’s largest, most successful gaming establishments. But what do they really mean? For many Americans, especially the hospitality gaming workforce, these phrases can ring hollow and insincere in a smoke-filled venue. Over time, we’ve seen more gaming establishments living up to these lofty goals…all while being wildly successful and 100% smokefree indoors. Sometimes it’s just as simple as adding outdoor smoking patios located off the gaming floor.
