Protecting all Minnesotans from the Dangers of Tobacco
The Association for Nonsmokers--Minnesota (ANSR) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to reducing the human and economic costs of tobacco use in Minnesota. Our core commitments are to reduce the number of young smokers and to continuously advocate for the rights and health of nonsmokers.
In 1975, ANSR helped pass the nation's first comprehensive state clean indoor air legislation. ANSR has continued to play a leading role in shaping tobacco policy by:
- Restricting sales of tobacco products to youth.
- Advocating for smoke-free work sites, restaurants, and multi-housing.
- Creating tobacco-free environments in outdoor recreational settings.
- Developing best practices for assisting military veterans with smoking cessation.
How you can help:
ANSR is driven by its membership base. You can help us continue our work to make Minnesota tobacco free. Support our efforts by becoming an ANSR member (membership is tax deductible). Visit the membership page to learn more about becoming an ANSR member.
