Say What! Movement

Say What! stands for Students, Adults and Youth Working Hard Against Tobacco! and was created by youth to give credit to everyone working towards reducing tobacco use throughout Texas. With guidance from the Texas Department of State Health Services and the Texas School Safety Center, youth leaders saw a need to connect the various tobacco prevention efforts happening statewide and unify them under their common goal of making Texans healthier regarding their tobacco use. The SayWhat! movement provides an umbrella organization to connect, learn, share, and inspire others to make a positive difference in their schools and communities! Resources, information, and tools are provided to the groups registered on the SayWhat! website.
