Generation FREE™ is fueled by teens across the state that lets young people know that they are FREE to be whoever they want to be! Even the millions of dollars spent by Big To***co and Big V**e every year in the state of Mississippi (over $130.2 MILLION the last time we checked!) aren’t enough to stop teens like you. You’re going to display your FREEdom from the manipulation and masquerades of an industry that kills more than 400,000 people in the United States annually. It’s just how you roll.
Generation FREE™ aims to meet students where they are by creating and sharing meaningful and insightful messages that are clear to understand and spoken in a familiar tone. Over the past few years, we have watched our vast variety of social media channels flourish into a landing area for fact driven discovery and conversation. Our current #BREAKTHEHABIT campaign is no different. Each Advocacy team is empowered to create multiple PSA videos to inform about the harmful effects of va**ng and using e-cigarettes. We continue to highlight the peer-led activities and events, while also being able to provide them with a digital platform for advocacy.
