Association For Nonsmokers-Minnesota

A nonprofit organization

100% complete

$5,000 Goal

We are a nonprofit organization dedicated to reducing the human and economic costs of commercial* tobacco use.

Despite the ongoing challenges of the pandemic, ANSR is working as hard as ever to reduce the human and economic costs of tobacco use in Minnesota. Our core commitments remain: protecting young people from a lifetime of addiction and protecting everyone from harmful secondhand smoke exposure where they live, work, and play. There has never been a better time to help prevent tobacco use and exposure. Doing so could save lives in the very near future.

*When referring to tobacco in our work, we are referring to commercial tobacco products and not tobacco used for sacred purposes by Indigenous communities.
