Acquisition Information

The papers were donated by Community Focus, one of the founding organizations, after the project ended in 2000.

Organizational History

The California Lavender Smokefree Project (CLSP) was established in 1995 by the Coalition of Lavender-Americans on Smoking and Health (CLASH) and Community Focus, both of San Francisco, California. The organization began operation on what was originally a two-year grant from the Tobacco Conrol Section of the California Department of Health Services of California's Proposition 99 funds (the Tobacco Tax Health Protection Act of 1998). CLSP received the first statewide grant from that fund that focused on the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community. For the next five years, until July 1, 2000, it coordinated resource teams throughout California that developed and carried out strategies to counter tobacco advertising in that community.

Scope and Content of Collection

These records document the work of the California Lavender Smokefree Project throughout its five-year course. Materials include correspondence, newsletters, flyers and pamphlets, contact and focus group reports, newspaper and magazine clippings, photographs, signs, press releases, photocopies of articles, printouts of project planning, media kits, fact sheets, advertising and drafts of advertising. Subjects covered include tobacco industry targeting of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender ("LGBT") community, smokefree bars and restaurants, regional teams and related organizations working toward tobacco control in the LGBT community, prevention of tobacco use among youth, and related topics.

Arrangement

The collection has been divided into 7 series: Resource Teams; Programs, Campaigns and Promotions; Press Releases, Publications and Clippings; Research and Information; Related Campaigns and Groups; Ephemera; Administrative Records. Arrangement is by subject, chronologically where possible for correspondence, articles and reports. Wherever possible, original folder titles have been preserved. Where original order was discernible, this was preserved. Otherwise, an assumed order was imposed based on observed groupings.
