 "We are so pleased to continue this important work in our community," said Moza Mjasiri Cooper of BALA.  "The more people we reach and teach the dangers of smoking to at a young age, the more lives we will save."

BALA will work extensively with charter schools, to provide tobacco prevention education to middle school students, and participate  in other community events.
