On August 31st the La Crosse FACT group wasted no time getting into gear this school year. The youth created a Human Billboard in downtown La Crosse in support of the new cigarette tax in Wisconsin.
The Human Billboard read: 75 cents equals 33-thousand teens spared from Big Tobacco.
Not only did community members driving by see the youth holding these signs but so did those watching the nightly news. Two of the group’s members were interviewed by News Channel 8 about why the tax increase is important to Wisconsin’s youth.
