One Step Closer to a #SmokeFreeNashville
Earlier this month, Nashville’s Metro Council voted to advance a NashvilleHealth-supported smoke-free ordinance to a third and final reading. The smoke-free ordinance would protect workers in 21+ venues from dangerous exposure to secondhand smoke. Our musicians, bartenders, and other hospitality employees should not have to put their health at risk to earn a paycheck.

Write and encourage your council member to pass this important ordinance!
