Our friends at the Asian Pacific Partners for Empowerment, Advocacy and Leadership
(APPEAL) had another recent great success with organizing a petitioned letter to the Congressional Asian Pacific American Caucus (CAPAC) requesting they ask FDA to remove menthol.
With a great number of signatures (including the Network’s), CAPAC did write a letter to FDA not only asking that menthol be removed but providing recommendations on further reducing tobacco use in diverse communities. You can see the letter here: CAPAC Menthol Letter. Now, we will wait and see if FDA moves on menthol.
This is a great show of collaboration led by APPEAL, and we congratulate their successful efforts!
