Action on Smoking and Health (ASH) is a national nonprofit legal action and educational organization fighting for the rights of nonsmokers against the many problems of smoking. ASH uses the tremendous power of the law to represent nonsmokers in courts and legislative bodies, and before regulatory agencies. For more than 40 years, ASH has been one of the most effective antismoking and nonsmokers' rights organizations in the world. ASH is active with regard to all aspects of the problems of smoking and nonsmokers' rights, and has a truly national focus. One of ASH's major roles in the U.S. is to serve as a think tank and incubator for new strategies and tactics, and as a vehicle for propagating these new ideas to other antismoking organizations, legislators and regulators, and the general public. ASH receives no money from the government or from the tobacco settlement.
