ChangeLab Solutions has worked on tobacco control policy for more than 15 years. In fact, our model tobacco control policies and laws helped change the public acceptance of smoking in California. Our largest program, formerly known as the Technical Assistance Legal Center (TALC), funded by the California Department of Public Health, provides California communities with free technical assistance on tobacco control policy issues.
ChangeLab Solutions' tobacco control attorneys provide advocates, health professionals, government attorneys, and elected officials with high-quality products and services on tobacco control policies. Our staff offers tailored support throughout the process of law and policy development, including providing research on specific legal issues and analyzing draft ordinances and policies. Thanks to ongoing funding from the California Department of Public Health, many of those services are provided at no cost to California communities.
Our website is packed with model policies, how-to guides, fact sheets, and other policy tools. Be sure to check out the TOOLS tab to browse or search resources organized by more specific categories.
