American Legacy Foundation

The American Legacy Foundation has changed its online presence by revamping its website – identifying itself as Legacy: For longer healthier lives – and using a new URL. The site focuses on tobacco, including links to research, but there is little on the new home page to indicate that the foundation was formed to address primarily the problem of youth smoking. Youth activism is listed fifth in the drop-down column under “What We Do.” Also on the home page is Legacy’s response to the October Youth Today story that examined how Legacy spends its money.
