The South Central Alliance for Tobacco Prevention serves Adams, Juneau, and Sauk counties by working to prevent commercial tobacco use among youth, eliminate secondhand smoke, and support local and state policies that encourage commercial tobacco prevention. By partnering with diverse coalition members and organizations we strive to empower our communities to holistically support its residents. We do this through meetings with state and local leaders, media opportunities, education & advocacy, and community training.

Health equity means everyone has a fair opportunity to be as healthy as possible. This is an important part of our coalition as we strive to improve the health and well-being for all Wisconites. Big Tobacco continues to disproportionately impact specific populations including youth, those utilizing behavioral health services, women and pregnant people, and the American Indian/Alaskan Native population.
