    Acquisition Information

    The Americans for Nonsmokers' Rights Records, Addendum (ANR-2) were given to the Tobacco Control Archives by Americans for Nonsmokers' Rights in increments during 1996-97.

    Organizational History

    Americans for Nonsmokers' Rights (ANR) was established in 1976 as the Group Against Smoking Pollution (GASP) when several local GASP chapters across California merged and incorporated. In 1981 California GASP became Californians for Nonsmokers' Rights (CNR). CNR went national in 1986 and became ANR. ANR advocates the rights of nonsmokers. It has been involved in political campaigns in California for Propositions 5 (1977-1978), 10 (1979-1980), and 99 (1986), and against Proposition 188 (1994). ANR has put nonsmokers' rights on the national agenda, by working to ban smoking on airline flights, and upholding the Environmental Protection Agency's risk assessment of secondhand smoke as a carcinogen. ANR works with cities and counties to enact local ordinances to protect nonsmokers on the job, in restaurants and public places, and on public transportation. ANR has established a National Resource Center to provide information and technical assistance to government agencies, local advocates and the media. ANR's mission, history, and programs are described on their Web site at http://www.no-smoke.org/ .
