The project seeks to

  • increase Latino access to cessation programs
  • educate and engage Latinos in the movement toward smoke-free multi-unit housing
  • educate and engage Latinos in efforts to prohibit the sale and distribution of flavored tobacco products, and
  • bring together groups working on Latino health and well-being programs to assure a coordinated approach to tobacco prevention.

LUCHA works to reduce tobacco-related disparities in the Latino community across a 14-county region in Northern California. Specially, the program aims to increase Latino access to and awareness of cessation programs and smoke-free multi-unit housing as well as to decrease access to flavored tobacco products.
