Reality Check is the youth component of the Tobacco Action Coalition of LI.

It is a state-wide initiative that focuses on educating and empowering youth to address the tobacco industry and their deceptive practices.

Activities focus on exposing the tobacco industry marketing practices and tobacco use in imagery in the movies, reducing the impact of the tobacco industry’s presence in retail stores and educating about the benefits of tobacco-free outdoor areas.

Reality Check provides youth opportunities to gain skills in leadership, team building, public speaking and media. Youth are the primary and creative force leading all projects.
