2019 Projects - What we've done:

Among the many projects that CASA undertakes in the region, featured below are few projects we've accomplished in the past year:

Smokefree Multiunit Housing in the City of San Diego: working to raise awareness about health impacts and housing costs associated with secondhand smoke. Our goal is two-fold: work with appropriate stakeholders toward voluntary smokefree policies; and to mobilize multifamily housing communities to advocate for healthy living conditions.

Tobacco Retailer Licensing (TRL): is one of the more effective

strategies for preventing youth access to tobacco. We work to promote

TRL policies to hold retailers accountable or illegal tobacco sales to

anyone under age 21, the legal age for tobacco sales.

  • Compliance Monitoring in the City of El Cajon where we will                                             continue working with the city to ensure high compliance rates                                                  among tobacco retailers.

  • In Lemon Grove we will be working with the city to implement their                                         new TRL (a CASA project these past few years), and we will be                                            supporting compliance monitoring. In addition, we have been asked                                        to draft a TRL Case Study for Small Cities to document the process in Lemon Grove and encourage others to consider TRL as a means to reduce youth access to tobacco products.


                                                      Smart Approaches to Marijuana (SAM) a national                                                                 collaboration dedicated to preventing the legalization and                                                               commercialization of marijuana.  We have been contracted to                                                         lead SAM in California and to provide technical assistance to                                                           communities across the country that want to prevent another                                                         Big Tobacco in their community.


Responsible Alcohol Sales and Service (RASS) training: We will continue our contract with Viejas Casino to provide this certification training for all of their sales and service associates. In addition, CASA is participating in the California Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) planning and roll out for mandatory RASS training associated with new state legislation.
