Disney Onscreen Smoking

In 2019, Disney purchased 140 films from Fox that contained smoking scenes. We wrote to CEO Robert Iger-from California, New Jersey, China, and Saudi Arabia-to place restrictions by warning about the impacts.

LACOE Alternative to Suspension Policies

Because we believe the vaping epidemic is reflective of manipulative marketing, we should focus more on help than punishment.

IYTC representatives were invited to the LA County Office of Education meeting to discuss alternatives to suspension.

No Tobacco Week

Our "No Tobacco" Weeks, either in China or with exchange students, have spread awareness to over 4,000 students.
