FACT

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.

You can help spread the word about Big Tobacco's Lies! Join the Fight!
