|The first word that comes to mind when looking back on Monday’s Town Hall Coalition meeting on tobacco and social justice is: SUCCESS! Over 125 people attended Monday evening to listen and ask questions about presentations given on the science, marketing, social and cultural facts about menthol and flavored tobacco products (including electronic and vaping). This town hall style coalition meeting was the first of two additional coalition meetings that will be added to our schedule to allow more community members to join us. It is a timely meeting for grassroots community education and support of the proposed amendments to Oakland’s existing Tobacco Retail License (TRL) and the neighboring city of San Leandro’s newly proposed TRL. Action alerts to attend public hearings on these policies will be in a separate email. At the bottom of this page there are links to presentations, photos, and materials that were at the meeting.
