Through strategic training, communication, and outreach, Citizens Freedom Alliance advances a common sense approach under which individuals can control their destinies as free and responsible members of society. The group strives to secure economic liberty, smokers rights, taxpayer rights, private property rights, freedom of speech, and other vital individual liberties to restore constitutional limits on the power of government. In addition, Citizens Freedom Alliance trains volunteers and supplies resources in the tactics of public interest topics. The group works with dozens of other smokers rights groups, freedom groups, and hundreds of individuals who are smokers, non-smokers, and some who are ex-antismoking extremists. Through these activities, the group challenges the ideology of the nanny state and illustrates and extends the benefits of freedom to those whose full enjoyment of liberty is denied by government.
Originally founded in 1994 as The Smoker's Club, Inc., is now the organization: Citizens Freedom Alliance and The Smoker's Club. It has evolved into the leading online Newsletter for Smokers Rights, Property Rights, and other issues. It pursues cutting-edge news coverage in the courts of law and in the court of public opinion on behalf of individuals whose most basic rights are denied by the government - like the right to earn an honest living, private property rights, and the right to free speech.
As Las Vegas Life magazine said of The Smoker's Club, Inc. "These are the Rosa Parks, the Martin Luther Kings, the Rosie O'Donnells of this movement, and their butts will not be smote. They must first convince the public of the lies they've been fed about the health risks of secondhand smoke. They must then capitalize on the economic impacts that bans will bring to businesses. It's an uphill battle, and these warriors will huff and puff all the way to the top."
As Smokeshop Magazine said of The International Smokers Rights Conference (June, 2005, Caesars Palace, Las Vegas) "Equally impressive, the conference provided much-needed overview and discussion of an even more eclectic array of topics that included: smoking bans, property rights issues, smoking and civil rights issues, grassroots activism, the tobacco control movement, the smokers' movement, reduced ignition propensity cigarettes, public policy analysis, and tax reform." "My hope is that their impressive efforts to date will not be underestimated by the industry and allowed to go unrecognized and/or unrewarded."
Simply put, Citizens Freedom Alliance takes the government and antismoking extremists to task when they stand in the way of people trying to earn an honest living, when they unconstitutionally take away individuals' property, when bureaucrats instead of parents dictate the education of children, and when government stifles speech. We seek a rule of law under which individuals can control their destinies as free and responsible members of society.
The Smoker's Club has accomplished a great deal in the media. You may have seen their volunteer staff and associates featured frequently in the national media, such as MSNBC, CNBC, CNN, Fox News, America at Night, CSPAN radio, BBC and other International media outlets, on many Institute websites, and at many local newspapers, magazines, and radio stations.
The Newsletter is used in many high school and college class syllabus around the world. The group also maintains an Interview Requests media contact sheet to respond quickly to interview requests based on geographical location, or experts on a given topic. They have become a media-clearing house as the place to go for "the other side of the story."
