Ramsey Tobacco Coalition

The Ramsey Tobacco Coalition (RTC) has been working to reduce the harm caused by tobacco in Ramsey County since 1997. RTC has been a leader in reducing youth access to tobacco, enforcing tobacco-free school ground policies, adopting tobacco-free park policies, adopting tobacco-free policies for youth clubs and youth-serving agencies, and adopting smoke-free workplace laws and point-of-sale ordinances in Ramsey County and St. Paul.
RTC is comprised of 23 active partner organizations and is working to reduce youth exposure to tobacco influences at the point of sale.
The focus of the project is to reduce the tobacco marketing and advertising practices by:
Identifying the level and types of tobacco influences in our area
Comparing the influences in inner city neighborhoods with those in suburban communities, and low income neighborhoods with middle and upper income neighborhoods within the city
Identifying any ways in which these industry influences may violate the legal restrictions created by local, state, and national laws, and legal settlements.
