Not Buying It: The Tobacco Industry's Rebrand
Join Truth Initiative for a virtual discussion on the tobacco industry’s efforts to rebrand itself as a part of the public health solution while putting a new generation at risk for nicotine addiction. We’ll break down the industry’s influence and unpack how individuals and businesses alike can negate these efforts by protecting their platforms.
