Prevent Tobacco Use in My Community

Tobacco Free Nebraska
Public Health

​The Tobacco Free Nebraska (TFN) movement includes many statewide partners. All are dedicated to reducing tobacco use among young people, eliminating exposure to secondhand smoke and helping people quit.

Local tobacco prevention coalitions, schools, and non-profits like the American Cancer Society, American Lung Association and American Heart Association often partner with TFN. Healthcare providers and educators, law enforcement, teachers and community leaders also work to address the serious health issues that result from tobacco use and exposure.

Youth Empowerment - No Limits

No Limits is Nebraska's first tobacco prevention movement created, led, and driven by the youth of our state.

It's all about Nebraska teens joining together to take a stand against Big Tobacco and their marketing practices through activism, empowerment and grassroots communication.

No Limits hosts a Youth Activism Summit, meetings and events that empower Nebraska teens to take action. Interactive sessions provide youth with an in-depth knowledge of Big Tobacco's marketing tactics and experience addressing tobacco issues.

To learn more about No Limits visit or call (402) 416-4774.
