On Kick Butts Day, March 20, more than 40 Alexandria youth, supported by adults, celebrated the day by conducting Operation Storefront, where they filled out surveys on the amount of tobacco advertising in over 60 local stores. Kick Butts Day is a national day of activism that engages youth in a variety of activities designed to raise awareness about the problems of tobacco use in the schools and in the community. The Kick Butts Day activities were sponsored by the Substance Abuse Prevention Coalition of Alexandria, the Clean and Smoke Free Air Coalition of Alexandria, Y Street, and the Department of Parks, Recreation, and Cultural Activities.
