LAUREL, MS (WDAM) - The Mississippi Tobacco-free coalition held a meeting in Laurel Friday to raise awareness about the dangers of tobacco-use.
The coalition works with schools, churches and other community organizations to promote and educate the public on a smoke-free environment.
Members said there should always be clean air for everyone.
"We take them things on second-hand smoke preventive measures. Anything related to cancer preventative and anything of that nature. Everybody deserves to breathe smoke-free air," Nicole Banks said.
The coalition serves Forrest, Jones and Jasper counties.
