Smoke-Free Dallas: One Step Closer


Yesterday, a committee of the Dallas City Council met again to discuss strengthening the current local ordinance. The committee recommended a smoke-free law that would include ALL workplaces and make Dallas completely Smoke-Free.

The proposal will be heard next Wednesday, December 3rd in front of the full City Council. A vote could take place on December 10th! This is a big step in the right direction of making Dallas the next major city to go Smoke-Free.

But our work is not done. We need to continue letting council members know the importance of protecting all workers from the harmful affects of secondhand smoke. Here’s what you can do:

-Go to http://www.smoke-freetexasnow.org/ and take action today.
-Send the website above to 10 of your friends, family, and collegueges in Dallas to help spread the word
-Attend the December 10th Council meeting to show your support. Email me if you can make it and receive a free Smoke-Free Texas t-shirt.

Smoke-Free Dallas Needs Your Help

Things are heating up in the fight to make Dallas smoke-free. Last night a special committee of the Dallas City Council met to further discuss strengthening the local ordinance. Big tobacco was out in full force – but so were we. We need to continue to let the Mayor and City Council know Dallas residents want smoke-free air.

Please visit http://www.SmokeFreeTexasNow.org to send your letter of support to the Mayor and City Council. In just two clicks you can pave the way for clean air and a healthier city.

The committee will meet next Monday 11/24 and a vote by the full council could take place as soon as December 3rd. Now is the time to show your support!
