Calling all Minnesota residents who like to breathe!

The fight against big tobacco in Minnesota isn’t over. In the last two weeks, things have been heating up in St. Paul and two credible threats to the Freedom to Breathe Act have been introduced in the House and the Senate. We can’t afford to go back; we must protect Minnesota’s health. It’s time for you to Raise it for Health!

Join us on April 7, 2011 for our Heart on the Hill Day at the Capitol. Learn about protecting your family and community from the tobacco industry, rally in the Rotunda and meet with your lawmakers urging them to:

· Significantly increase the price of all tobacco products,
· Treat “little cigars” like cigarettes to protect kids,
· Protect the Freedom to Breathe Act.

Do you know others interested in raising their voice to keep Minnesota healthy? Invite them to join the event! Just simply forward this posting. Thank you for your continued support!
