The need for effective grassroots support groups is not unique to the movement for smokefree air. Movements need strategy, resources, networks, and effective communications to advance their vision and achieve social change. Grassroots support groups like ANR see the “big picture” and can assess the landscape and connect national, statewide, and local groups to help them build their own power and capacity.

Americans for Nonsmokers’ Rights (ANR) and the American Nonsmokers’ Rights Foundation have been leading the charge to protect nonsmokers from secondhand smoke since 1976. They started out as a small group of concerned citizens who were tired of breathing other people’s tobacco smoke in the workplace and public places such as restaurants and airplanes. Today, advocates across the country turn to ANR for support for their grassroots efforts to clear the air.
