Find Out What's For Sale in Your Neighborhood

There's Strength in Numbers

Find out what your local community health organizations are doing to counter Big Tobacco and offer to help. Or join with friends to get to know what’s for sale near your homes and schools. To get started:



Connect with the Oregon TPEP coordinator (Tobacco Prevention and Education Program) for your county or tribe. Coordinators work at the local level to engage Oregonians in strategic efforts to counter Big Tobacco’s marketing, encourage more tobacco-free environments, and reduce the burden of tobacco in their communities.



Explore Links to Other Organizations — such as the American Cancer Society, Oregon Parks and Recreation Department and the Portland African American Leadership Forum—to find out what they’re doing to counter the damage caused by tobacco and promote smokefree public places, and how you can get involved.

Take Note of What’s For Sale
In Your Neighborhood
  • What kinds of stores in your community sell tobacco? Are they near schools or other places where kids often go, such as parks and libraries?
  • Is tobacco advertising on the front and sides of the stores, or do you have to go inside to see them?
  • Are cigarettes or smokeless tobacco displayed near the candy aisle or on lower shelves where a young child could see them?
  • Do pharmacies in your area sell cigarettes (that cause cancer) in the front of the store and medicine (to treat people with cancer) in the back?
