我們的任務

30多年來,我們一直在領導保護加州人免受煙草商危害的抗爭。因為我們值得享有健康的生活、更低廉的醫療保健費用、無煙社區,以及不存在煙草業有毒廢棄物的環境。孩子們應該在沒有煙草商毒害他們童年的環境中成長。1

每一天,我們都在努力終結煙草商對大眾的危害,並恢復每位加州人本應享有的健康權益。

UNDO從一開始就具有的真知灼見之一,就是吸煙是一種社會建構的行為⋯棒球卡是由香煙公司發明的,他們想將煙草與運動相互聯繫,並將其正常化。"

斯坦·格蘭茲(Stan Glantz)博士 - 加州大學舊金山分校煙草控制研究和教育中心主任(已退休)

鑑於煙草商針對特定族群的方式,UNDO非常清楚煙草商不想遺漏任何群體。"

提姆·邁克菲(Tim McAfee)博士 - CDC吸煙與健康辦公室前主任

我拒絕接受這些產品會永遠與我們同在的想法。"

露絲·馬龍(Ruth Malone)博士 - 加州大學舊金山分校社會與行為科學系榮譽退休教授(已撤銷)

如果沒有人吸煙,我們將不再有工作可做,這將會是權衡之下極好的交換。"
