What is CASAA?
We are a non-profit organization with a mission is to ensure the availability of a variety of effective, affordable, reduced-harm alternatives to smoking. We do this by...
Tracking state and federal legislation involving Tobacco Harm Reduction products and issuing Calls to Action to our membership. Our Calls to Action allow consumers to connect directly with their legislators and share their informed opinions.
Issuing Local Alerts to our membership in affected areas, and also rebroadcasting information on local issues produced by various state and regional organizations.
Sharing news, research, Calls to Action, and legislative information via social media and email.
Working to encourage responsible legislative policy designed to improve public health by recognizing that smoke-free nicotine-containing products are inherently far less dangerous than smoking.
CASAA needs your support so we can defend the access, diversity, and truthful information about smoke-free alternatives. Every donation goes to fund calls to action, efforts to meet with lawmakers and regulators, and our operations. We are a non-profit organization with an all volunteer board, ensuring your contributions go directly into real advocacy.
