Recognizing that tobacco is a primary risk factor in many chronic diseases, the New Mexico Allied Council on Tobacco (NM ACT) is a workgroup of the Chronic Disease Prevention Council (CDPC; that aims to bring together community partners interested in working on tobacco control policy issues statewide. This will be accomplished by building and enhancing the capacity of the workgroup participants to advocate for tobacco policy to reduce tobacco use and the harmful and addictive use of tobacco (e.g., cigarettes, cigars, smokeless tobacco products, etc.) outside of beneficial traditional, sacred or ceremonial purposes.

Giving to our nonprofit organization is not a business transaction. It is a connection with the humans and the world.  Individuals make up 72 percent of charitable giving. Without you, social impact organizations couldn’t exist. Without you, a cry for help goes unanswered, a problem goes unsolved.  Your donation is vital to our ability to advance our mission and grow. Even a small gift propels NM ACT toward greater impact.

No one has ever become poor by giving.
