What is Truth Initiative?

Truth Initiative conducts groundbreaking research and policy studies, gives young people the facts about smoking, vaping, nicotine and the tobacco industry, engages individuals and groups to make change in their communities, innovates new ways to end tobacco use, and joins forces with collaborators committed to making tobacco use and nicotine addiction a thing of the past. In short: we seek, speak, and spread the truth about tobacco smoking, vaping and nicotine.

Our work has prevented millions of young people from becoming smokers, including 2.5 million between 2015 and 2018 alone. We believe a culture where young people reject smoking, vaping, and nicotine can be achieved within this generation — and we won’t stop until we create a future where tobacco use and nicotine addiction are a thing of the past.
