Personality Profile: Roy Rosell

The new Organizing Update from the Center highlights Roy Rosell who works for AYC. In the interview he shares how he gets involved in communities in which he works. 

“I reach out to everything that is happening in whatever city that I’m working in. If the Fire Department has a barbecue going and a lot of members of the community will be there, I’m going to show up. In Monrovia I joined the Coordinating Council, worked on the local food bank, Meals on Wheels and other groups. Pretty soon people were saying, ‘Wow! These people from tobacco control are into everything.’”

How many of you have been to the Fire Department barbeque representing tobacco control? What kinds of other community event have you joined or worked with as a tobacco control advocate (not just as an individual)?
