Gather your family and friends for an evening of live musical entertainment for the 2020 Great American Smokeout. This day of quitting smoking was started by the American Cancer Society (ACS) and is held the 3rd Thursday of November.
According to the ACS, quitting smoking isn’t easy. It takes time and a plan. You don’t have to stop smoking in one day. Start with day one.
The SOL Project (Saving Our Legacy, African Americans for Smoke-free Safe Places) is hosting this free virtual event. SOL advocates for healthy, smoke-free communities for African Americans and other populations who suffer disproportionately as a result of social conditions and tobacco use.
