Tobacco-free and Smokefree Workplace Resolutions for Tribes
The Leadership for Eliminating Alaskan Disparities workgroup and the Southeast Alaska Regional Health Consortium are working together to support local tribes in their efforts to create completely tobacco-free environments. Many tribes have already passed resolutions making their tribal workplaces completely smokefree or tobacco-free. If your local tribe is interested in passing a resolution of their own, sample smokefree and tobacco-free workplace resolutions are available for download. Passing resolutions such as these protect people from secondhand smoke, reduce tobacco use overall, support healthy lifestyles, model healthy behavior, and support successful quit attempts.
