Green Lake Leadership Conference
On April 16th members of the Youth Coalition traveled to Green Lake, Wisconsin to attend Central Wisconsin's Link n Learn Youth Leadership Conference.
300 Wisconsin teens started FACT in 2001 to fight Big Tobacco. The tobacco industry makes billions of dollars selling a product that kills 1,200 poeple a day in the U.S. alone. FACT is a youth-led movement that takes action and creates change. We do it by exposing Big Tobacco's dirty secrets and deceptive practices. By empowering Wisconsin teens to stand up to an industry that's lying to us. And by understanding that FACT's fight is with the tobacco industry, not smokers.
