Everyone deserves a smoke-free home. Thanks for taking it outside.
A campaign to increase the availability of smoke-free rental housing
The US Surgeon General reports there are no safe levels of second hand smoke. The Minneapolis Health Department launched this campaign after conducting a survey of Minneapolis rental properties, which showed that one-third do not have a policy requiring people to smoke outside. In rental housing that accepts subsidies for low-income renters, there are even fewer smoke-free options. Only 38% of these properties have smoke-free policies.
The goal of the campaign is to encourage property owners and renters to pursue smoke-free rental housing AND to thank people who smoke for protecting their neighbors from secondhand smoke.
As part of Take It Outside campaign, MHD and Live SmokeFree can provide one-on-one assistance and resources to help.
