Addressing Tobacco Use in Black Communities (American Lung Association)

Lung health disparities persist among Black Americans, especially in lung cancer incidence and menthol cigarette use. In anticipation of the Food and Drug Administration’s expected proposal to remove menthol cigarettes from the marketplace, the American Lung Association is actively working to address these disparities and the systemic issues that perpetuate them. ALA's Addressing Tobacco Use in Black Communities Toolkit features a variety of culturally competent resources, trainings, videos, and other relevant materials focused on three key objectives:

  • Build Competence by learning about the racist history of tobacco in Black communities;
  • Encourage Connectedness by learning how to be an authentic ally and building better community partnerships; and
  • Confidence to Act with materials, resources, and trainings to equip toolkit users.
