Mission Statement

To prevent and reduce tobacco use and the associated health and economic consequences in the Omaha area via prevention through public policy and education.

Description

The Metro Omaha Tobacco Action Coalition (MOTAC) is a dynamic coalition comprised of over 50 health related individuals, organizations, and educational groups. MOTAC was formed in 1992 in order to strengthen tobacco control and prevention efforts in the metro Omaha area. Since its inception, MOTAC has taken the lead within Douglas County to address tobacco related issues through public education and community action.

MOTAC's newest initiate was kicked off on May 31, 2013 at Hanscom Park. Many cities across the midwest are adopting tobacco-free parks, including Lincoln, Nebraska. MOTAC believes that a tobacco-free parks policy in Omaha would:

  1. Reduce exposure to second hand smoke.
  2. Reduce toxic litter of cigarette butts in Omaha's beautiful parks.
  3. Change the cultural norm for our children, because if they do not see adults smoking they won't start themselves.
