An advertisement that ran in JET magazine for "Swisher Sweets Little Cigars with Menthol."

Community and tobacco control advocates from around the nation have joined with the National Association of African Americans for Positive Imagery to denounce the promotion, marketing and sale of little cigars called Swisher Sweets Little Cigars in Menthol. "This product is the latest in the arsenal of weapons aimed at the well-being of the African American community, particularly its youth", noted Reverend Jesse W. Brown, Jr., head of NAAAPI.

The goal of the "Swisher Ain't Sweet" campaign is to remove the product from the market. This goal can be accomplished through community mobilization of youth and adults using several action steps.

Check out a press release for the "Swisher Ain't Sweet" campaign.
