What will "Breathe Free" partners be asked to do?

As partners, organizations will be asked to provide a signed statement indicating:

  • Number of booklets that will be printed,
  • Approximate dollar value of the printing,
  • Confirmation that booklets will be made available free to the public,
  • Brief description of the planned distribution plan,
  • Declaration that the distribution plan will not include tobacco companies or their advertisers or associates,
  • Advance copy of any advertising that will be placed on the back page.

In return, public and private organizations and coalitions that agree to partner with NAAAPI on the Smokefree Air campaign will receive free access to files needed to print the booklet (web site or CD) as well as Breathe Free public service announcements.

The Breathe Free booklet was developed by NAAAPI under a grant from the Office on Smoking and Health (OSH) of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and The American Legacy Foundation. The initial draft was reviewed by African American focus groups around the country. This booklet complements other clean indoor air programs and smoking cessation programs designed for African Americans, such as Pathways to Freedom and Not in Mama's Kitchen.
