Start Noticing is a coalition in Cottonwood, Jackson and Redwood Counties working to eliminate the harmful effects of tobacco use and exposure, especially among vulnerable youth, through community engagement, education and policy implementation.

Smoke-free policies protect vulnerable populations. We are working on policies to achieve:
  • Smoke-free foster care homes
  • Smoke-free day care homes
  • Smoke-free income based multi-unit housing
  • Eliminating the exposure of vulnerable populations to point of sale advertising
  • Tobacco-free outdoor spaces
