Help make Little Rock Smoke Free!

This petition had 500 supporters

We need your help to ensure all workplaces in Little Rock are smoke-free, and everyone can earn a paycheck without the risk of heart disease, stroke, and cancer. Right now cities across Arkansas are looking at expanding their smoke-free laws to protect more people, prevent chronic disease, reduce health care costs and save lives. City leaders need to hear from you.

Ask Your City Board of Directors Member to Make ALL Workplaces Smoke-Free!

Right now Mayor Stodola and the City Board of Directors need to hear from citizens about protecting ALL workers, residents, and visitors from secondhand smoke, a leading risk factor for heart disease, stroke and cancer. An eight hour shift at a smoke-filled bar can mean the equivalent of smoking a pack of cigarettes! The good news is that these risks can be prevented through comprehensive smoke-free laws. Currently many traditional businesses are smoke-free, but too many establishments in the hospitality industry, like bars and restaurants, are not.

We believe everyone deserves to breathe smoke-free air, and that no one should have to choose between their health and earning a paycheck. Will you help us by signing a petition asking city leaders to pass a comprehensive smoke-free ordinance that covers all businesses?

Help us move one step closer to Smoke-Free Arkansas by signing this petition!
