Kick Butts Day is a day of activism that empowers youth to stand out, speak up and seize control against Big Tobacco at more than 1,000 events planned by independent organizers across the United States and around the world. The next Kick Butts Day will be held March 16, 2016.

Kick Butts Day is less than two months away!

On March 16, youth across the country and around the world will participate in Kick Butts Day. They’ll stand out, speak up and seize control against Big Tobacco through powerful, creative events held at their schools and in their communities.

We’re asking youth leaders, health advocates and teachers to register their events so we don’t miss a single one! Have you registered your event yet?

Registered events appear on our 2016 Kick Butts Day map, an interactive tool that shares information about events throughout the country and around the world. For a limited time, every 50th event registered will receive a Kick Butts Day prize pack!

The map is a great resource to let your community, local media and other Kick Butts Day participants know about your planned activities. Once your event is registered, our expert media team will contact you to find out more information and help you get local media attention toward the event.

We can’t wait to see new pins appear on the map as everyone shares how they plan to kick butts! Every Kick Butts Day event brings us one step closer to making the next generation tobacco-free.
