  Recently, young people from Teens in Everett Against Substance Abuse (TEASA) – a program of Cambridge Health Alliance – and Revere’s Youth Health Leadership Council (YHLC), high schoolers who work with Revere’s Healthy Community Initiatives Office and the MGH Revere CARES Coalition, attended Kick Butts Day: Youth Day of Action, a virtual event hosted by The 84 movement. The 84 is a statewide movement of youths fighting against the tobacco and vaping industries in Massachusetts. During the event, young people participated in a workshop to prepare for meeting with their legislators. As part of the workshop, Everett High School senior Samaga Pokharel and Revere High School junior Hana Menkari participated in a panel discussion with Representative Danielle Gregoire (4th Middlesex District), introducing the teens to what legislators do, learning tips to guide their meetings with legislators and questioning Representative Gregoire about her experience.
