CASAA launches Kansas City Chapter

CASAA is pleased to announce the formation of our first chapter. Passionate and dedicated tobacco harm reduction advocates in Kansas City have stepped forward and volunteered to establish this pilot chapter.

“CASAA chapters will help our membership to become more significantly involved in our mission,” said CASAA’s Legislative Coordinator Alex Clark. “Effectively sharing information about the public health benefits associated with smokers switching to low-risk alternatives is vital to achieving our policy goals. We are grateful to our Kansas City CASAA members for their willingness to take on this exciting project.”

Kansas City CASAA’s mission is to more effectively inform and engage consumers in the Kansas City metropolitan area and to reach out to legislators, policymakers, and the general public to share information about vapor products and other low-risk alternatives to smoking.

“We are honored that Kansas City will be CASAA’s first chapter. We have a lot of challenges ahead, but we are hopeful that we can begin to change the perception of vapor products and help people understand the incredible promise they hold for smokers. Education at the local level is a critical part of our fight to keep these products available,” notes Kansas City CASAA’s President, Bert Brown.
