We Will Not Be FUULed!

“Despite what they say, Altria spends billions marketing their deadly products right in front of us, first cigarettes and now Juul” said Phoenix Longway, Reality Check leader and freshman at Dolgeville. “Their goal is to create a new generation of customers—just in a different product. Enough is enough, already!”

“Ignored most of our questions…”

Miranda Bickham- “I attended the Altria Shareholder’s meeting and had the opportunity to ask the CEO of the company a question regarding the dangers of tobacco industries. During this meeting, I was completely shocked to see that the CEO of Altria not only completely ignored most of our questions, but to also preach about the importance of their new stock in JUUL afterwards. From going to this meeting, I learned more about the tobacco industry itself and many of the differences between what the company says versus what they actually do.”

Through the Eyes of an RC Youth

Faith Malo- “Being on the Altria trip was such an amazing experience. To be park of the group pushing for change and listening to and yelling all the chants that were created was such a motivating thing for me. I learned more about how the tobacco industry targets minority groups, and the importance of strength in numbers. Seeing how passionate all the coordinates and youth were towards our cause was so amazing!”

“Making a difference…”

Lilly Bouton- “Attending the Altria trip was an amazing experience. I learned more in depth about how the tobacco industries are targeting youth and how the public is taking action to react against the tobacco industries’ goals. To be with such a large group of teens, all trying to reach the same goal is amazing. Being able to shout out our minds as one, outside of an annual shareholders meeting was so great because we got to express how we felt and we know we were making a difference, with only more to come.”
