JWMS FACT group creates powerful anti-tobacco messages
The James Williams Middle School FACT (Fighting Against Corporate Tobacco) group recently completed the Big Tobacco Trash and Cup in the Fence FACTivisms. The Big Tobacco Trash FACTivism included filling and displaying bright orange garbage bags at JWMS with the message “Big Tobacco Treats Teens Like Trash” by marketing candy-flavored tobacco products to them.
The Cup in the Fence FACTivism was completed by using cups to create the message “Candy Hides Poison” in the JWMS fence. The students decided to use these messages to expose tobacco companies for using candy flavors to hide the dangerous chemicals in their products.
