The health and wellbeing of communities are tested when there are dense concentrations of alcohol and tobacco retail outlets, marijuana is abundantly available, and secondhand exposure to smoke is ubiquitous. So, it is up to concerned stakeholders to weigh in and ensure that there is a responsible balance between personal freedoms and the public interest.
Fighting Back Partnership’s Civic Engagement Department is a leader in building citizen and diverse sector support for evidence-based policies that curb the negative impacts of alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs (ATOD) use in communities. Through rigorous research, development, and promotion of public policy solutions to reduce access and availability of ATOD, particularly to youth, Fighting Back Partnership works with public officials, concerned citizens, and businesses to build stronger, healthier communities that benefit everyone.
And because Fighting Back Partnership has a rich, demonstrated history of developing, implementing and evaluating evidence-based strategies to reduce ATOD use and its related harms in Vallejo, the organization now provides technical assistance and training to prevention coalitions throughout Solano County. In addition, Fighting Back coordinates the Solano County ATOD Prevention Collaborative, which likewise has the mission of reducing ATOD use among youth in the County.
The Solano County ATOD Prevention Collaborative meets quarterly in February, May, August, and November.

Fighting Back Partnership is a member of the Vallejo Community Change Coalition (VCCC), a prevention coalition started in 1992, to (1) educate and engage community members about environmental health factors; and (2) impact public policy to reduce the negative impacts of alcohol, tobacco, marijuana, and other unhealthy products on youth.
The VCCC meets quarterly throughout the year at the Fighting Back Partnership office, 505 Santa Clara Street, Third Floor in Vallejo.
To join or for more information, contact Dante De La Cerna, Civic Engagement Manager, at (707) 651-7180 or email@example.com.
The work of the VCCC is made possible by the Solano County Public Health, the Solano County Board of Supervisors, and the California Department of Public Health, California Tobacco Control Program.
