The traveling bus will be completely wrapped with YES on Prop 31 logo, campaign hashtags, and candy-related imagery. The colorfully-wrapped bus will serve as the backdrop for press conferences in every location, joined by community volunteers and advocates who will speak to the urgency of passing Prop 31 this year.
WHAT: Bus tour with six stops, six press conferences urging Californians to vote YES on Prop 31 to finally end the sale of candy-flavored tobacco products, including minty-menthol cigarettes, across California.
