Our Goals

The Community Health Alliance is working to pass fair and safe policies that control exposure to tobacco and cannabis smoke in multi-unit residences in the City of Los Angeles. Since people spend more time in their homes than any other location, such policies can significantly improve air quality and residents’ health.

At the same time, our aim is set all residents up for success – including smokers – by providing resources and reasonable accommodations.

Smoking is the leading cause of preventable death in the United States. Exposure to secondhand smoke is estimated to have killed approximately 2.5 million non-smokers in the United States since 1964.

Our goal is to limit the extraordinary harm that second and third harm smoke inflict on individuals and families who live in multi-unit housing.
