About the event
The Center for Black Health & Equity’s No Menthol Sunday is our annual opportunity for faith communities to address the detrimental impact tobacco has on Black communities. Each year we encourage faith leaders to dedicate this day to educating congregants about smoking, vaping, and the role of menthol and other flavors. The pandemic has increased the risk of smoking-related deaths in our communities, but there is so much we can do to focus on victory!
This year’s theme, "Focus on Victory, Go Against the Grain" encourages us to stand up against the tobacco industry and create healthy and just tobacco-free communities.
It’s been two years since the Food & Drug Administration announced the rule-making process to prohibit the sale of tobacco products with any characterizing flavors, like menthol. That is a historic win! As the FDA continues its process, we must continue to uplift one another and advocate for a healthier future.
