91% OF FORT WORTH RESIDENTS AGREE EVERYONE DESERVES THE RIGHT TO BREATHE SMOKEFREE AIR IN PUBLIC PLACES AND AT WORK
Who Is Affected?
All Employees Need Protection
Fort Worth is the largest city in Texas that does not yet have an ordinance protecting citizens from the exposure to secondhand smoke in all workplaces. A smokefree ordinance will protect the health of every resident in Fort Worth by eliminating their exposure to secondhand smoke in bars and bingo parlors. Everyone will breathe easier, and this will create safer, healthier environments for everyone who lives, works, and visits our city.
Thousands of people in Fort Worth are exposed to dangerous levels of secondhand smoke at work every day. Everyone in Fort Worth has the right to breathe smokefree air - no matter where they work.
100% Smokefree Workplace Policies Are The Only Effective Way to Eliminate Secondhand Smoke
More than 80 other Texas communities have local ordinances to protect people from secondhand smoke.
Now it’s time for Fort Worth to step up and provide a healthy workforce and livable community, without allowing toxic secondhand smoke in hospitality venues and other workplaces.
Fort Worth residents deserve to breathe smokefree air in workplaces and public places.
