Mission Statement

A statewide network of organizations and individuals fighting to reduce tobacco and nicotine use, the leading cause of preventable death and disease in Rhode Island.


Tobacco Free Rhode Island (TFRI) is a central coordinator for people and organizations working on tobacco control in Rhode island. We facilitate communication, share information, and provide resources and action strategies for people and organizations trying to create policy change. TFRI is a vital source of advice and technical assistance for our network partners, sharing best practices, convening meetings and training sessions, and helping members collaborate more effectively around common goals and policy change strategies.

The TFRI Youth Program is a statewide movement of youth and young adults. The Program will run from September through June. It consists of the following engagement levels: The TFRI Youth Network (all ages), The Tobacco-Free Ambassador Program (ages 12-21), and The Tobacco-Free Ambassador Leadership Team (ages 12-21).

The youth and young adults in our program are committed to advocating, educating, mobilizing, and preventing tobacco and nicotine use in Rhode Island. They are able to engage in workshops, trainings, and other opportunities throughout the year that will better their understanding of tobacco, nicotine, and related topics. Youth may have opportunities to participate in national, state, and local events. TFRI puts both learning and fun equally at the forefront of everything we do and hopes each youth spends a year not only learning about tobacco and nicotine, but about their state, peers, and themselves.
