To empower and untie youth to resist and expose big tobacco’s lies while changing current attitudes about tobacco!
SWAT is Oklahoma’s youth movement to expose Big Tobacco’s lies and deceptive practices. SWAT teams around the state are becoming advocates for change in their local communities. The result is a healthier Oklahoma. SWAT is a youth-led, youth-driven movement that empowers teens to stand up, speak out, and take action against the tobacco industry, which targets them as replacement tobacco users.
Goals and Accomplishments:
Our goal as the Woodall SWAT team is to address issues within our community by utilizing our school website and reaching out to the community. We plan to eliminate smoking at all school events and raise awareness to students, teachers, and parents about Big Tobacco lies. With our accomplishments we can prevent Big Tobacco from targeting our youth and increase awareness of a healthier lifestyle.
Woodall SWAT team participated in the Kick Butts Day at Norris Park in Tahlequah, OK in March. Our team joined other Cherokee County teams in picking up cigarette butts, tobacco-related trash, as well as other trash found in the park.
