In 1994, NAAAPI expanded the commemoration of World No-Tobacco Day in the United States. This world-wide health event, held on May 31 each year, is designated by the World Health Organization (WHO) to recognize the major threat that tobacco use continues to pose to global public health. From 1994 to 2000, NAAAPI spearheaded World No-Tobacco Day events throughout the United States.

NAAAPI introduced the concept of holding a New Orleans-style Jazz Funeral on World No-Tobacco Day to remember all those who have died from tobacco with an event drawn from African American cultural history.

Reverend Jesse W. Brown, Jr., founding chairperson of NAAAPI and the current acting executive director, serves as President of the Board of the U.S. World No Tobacco Day Coalition. To see the coalition's web page visit:
