Kick Butts Day

Today is Kick Butts Day, a national day of activism that empowers youth to speak up and take action against Big Tobacco. Tonight at 6:00 p.m. at the United Artists movie theater at Circle Center Mall, 49 W. Maryland St., local Voice youth will be holding a demonstration to protest smoking in G, PG and PG-13 movies. To learn more about smoking in movies visit Smoke Free Movies.

Also as a part of the Kick Butts Day celebration the VOICE movement is planning two
other events: on March 27th, youth ages 13 to 18 are invited to attend a March Madness Lockin
from 10p.m. to 7a.m. at Snapperz & Sports of all Sorts, located at 6002 Sunnyside Road,
Indianapolis. On March 28th, kids who bring a tobacco advertisement or wear VOICE gear
will get in FREE at the Kick Butts Day Skateland Celebration, which will take place from 2p.m. to
6p.m., at the Skateland Roller Skating Center, located at 3902 Glen Arm Rd, Indianapolis.

Today also marks the first day for Hancock County to be completely smoke free. So take a moment to drive across the line to visit one their now smoke free bars, bowling alleys or private clubs!
