NMS @ Hatch Chile Fest
On September 3rd-4th, 2017, the No Minor Sale campaign participated in the 46th Annual Hatch Chile Festival in Hatch, NM. The Chile Fest attracts not only New Mexicans, but also people from neighboring states such as Arizona, Colorado, and Texas, as well as California.
Along with two local volunteers, Andrea and David, we were able to speak to over 100 people at this event about the importance of ending illegal tobacco sales to minors. People were very receptive and engaging. Phillip, a resident of Albuquerque drove down to celebrate Hatch-grown chiles and visit the vendor booths. “Tobacco is a very addictive and harmful substance,” claimed Phillip. “It has no business in the hands of minors.”
Community events are a great way for the campaign to make a big impact in every locality in New Mexico. We have many events scheduled throughout the year, and we want to come to your town! Click here to bring No Minor Sale to your community.
