Among all states, Louisiana has the fifth highest smoking rate and is second to Nevada in the percentage of workers who work in non-smoke-free workplaces. The Louisiana Comprehensive Cancer Control Program (LCCCP), Geographic Health Equity Alliance, and Louisiana Campaign for Tobacco-Free Living (TFL) partnered together to promote a public education campaign and legislative solution for smoke-free workplaces. The coalitions promoted their effort by using strategies that incorporated local communities, cultural elements and a fun-loving atmosphere unique to New Orleans. In addition, they engaged traditional and non-traditional champions like musicians to communicate and strengthen their message. Their efforts led to the New Orleans City Council unanimously approving a comprehensive smoke-free ordinance banning smoking inside worksites and public places including bars, casinos and restaurants .
