The Wisconsin Smoke-free Alternatives Coalition is proud to announce that it has merged with The Consumer Advocates for Smoke-free Alternatives Association (CASAA).

CASAA is a national non-profit 501(c)(4) organization with an all-volunteer board and a grassroots membership of more than 257,000 individuals from all walks of life, and we are growing daily. We are a consumer organization, not a trade association. We are dedicated to ensuring the availability of reduced harm alternatives to smoking and to providing smokers and non-smokers alike with honest information about those alternatives so that they can make informed choices.

Since CASAA’s founding in 2009, we have educated the public and increased awareness about the benefits of reduced harm alternatives to smoking, including e-cigarettes (also known as vapor products). We also encourage responsible legislative policy designed to improve public health by recognizing that smoke-free nicotine-containing products are inherently far less dangerous than smoking.

On the CASAA web site (casaa.org) you will find CASAA’s Calls to Action, 50 state pages with legislative contact information, laws, advocacy tips and local Calls to Action; published news stories, scientific studies, links and informational materials to help educate the public about Tobacco Harm Reduction and to assist CASAA members in their advocacy efforts to keep vapor products and other harm reduction methods available, affordable, and effective.

CASAA is very active on social media. WSAC’s established Facebook group of over 430 members is now the Wisconsin Consumer Advocates for Smoke-free Alternatives Association (facebook.com/groups/WisconsinCASAA/). CASAA has 49 other state Facebook groups and a main Facebook group, We Are CASAA (facebook.com/groups/casaamembers/) with over 23,000 members. CASAA can also be found on Twitter (twitter.com/CASAAmedia), YouTube (youtube.com/user/MyCasaa) and InstaGram (instagram.com/CASAAMEDIA/).

Thank you to everyone who has supported WSAC in the past. I hope to see you all in the CASAA Wisconsin Facebook group soon. There is a a lot of work to do and we need all hands on deck! Please take a moment to join CASAA by clicking the link below today. It’s easy and FREE!

Sincerely,
Kristin Noll-Marsh
