Celebrating youth-led statewide policy change in new Mexico

Sometimes making healthy choices requires more than just knowledge of the health benefits or consequences of a behavior. Rescue Agency’s Youth Engagement and Policy Change programs empower young people to advocate for policy reform to:

  • Reduce tobacco use
  • Increase access to nutrition and healthy drinking water
  • Prevent substance use

We unify stakeholders and changemakers around a clear, focused goal that
will create broad support for a policy change to promote healthy behaviors.

We're excited to celebrate our 2023 statewide policy change in New Mexico! Rule 6.12.4 NMAC passed, prohibiting commercial tobacco and nicotine use in schools.
