Our Leadship and Advocacy Institute to Advance Minnesota’s Parity for Priority Populations (LAAMPP) develops skills for effective tobacco control among diverse communities. Through this program, we give funding to members of Minnesota’s African and African American, American Indian, Asian American, Chicano Latino and Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) communities to do outreach work and raise awareness of tobacco’s harm.
American Indian Nations
We are working to create inroads with Minnesota’s American Indian Nations, whose members are among the most burdened by the disease and premature death caused by commercial tobacco. We fund grantees to educate about the difference between commercial and traditional tobacco use, and to advance smoke-free policies on tribal lands.
