Tobacco Control Coalition
The Alameda County Tobacco Control Coalition (ACTCC) is comprised of over 200 individuals, organizations and advocates for the prevention, reduction, and control of tobacco use. The ACTCC is committed to the de-normalization of tobacco use in Alameda County. Tobacco kills nearly 34,000 Californians each year; 10 years earlier than had they not used tobacco. The state of California spends nearly $22 billion a year in health care bills and lost productivity due to tobacco related health problems.
