Capitol Information & Education (I&E) Days has been an annual event at the California State Capitol for over a decade. It was started by the Joint Ethnic Networks, which educated legislators on the impact of tobacco on California’s diverse ethnic populations. In 2005 the event was broadened to include all Prop. 99 funded projects. Now, each year about 150 people from around the state come to the Capitol to educate their legislators about the burden of tobacco in their communities.
Attendees organize under the Coalition to Protect All Californians from Tobacco (PACT), which is a coalition of individuals from tobacco prevention organizations and public health agencies committed to reducing the impact of tobacco on Californians. The mission of the PACT Coalition is to educate local and state elected officials about the social, health and economic impact of tobacco and tobacco-related disease in California and to serve as a resource on local and statewide tobacco prevention issues.
