Evolvement New Mexico is a youth engagement movement funded by the Tobacco Use Prevention and Control (TUPAC) Program at the New Mexico Department of Health. Since 2010, more than 3,000 high school youth have been united as agents of change to decrease the harmful and addictive use of tobacco in New Mexico.
