Hopkins Kicks Butts (HKB) is JHU's Anti-Tobacco Coalition. The mission of Hopkins Kicks Butts is to promote a healthier campus community through activism and awareness against tobacco use. We are dedicated to raising awareness about the harm and dangers of tobacco use. Through tabling, campaigns, policy change, and outreach, HKB works to make Homewood a healthier, smoke-free environment.
As part of fulfulling our mission, HKB has developed a smoke-free campus proposal to promote the well-being of the student body by reducing exposure to secondhand smoke. This proposal is not meant to infringe upon anyone's rights but to serve as an important measure towards public health. For more information on the policy and to provide your feedback visit our HKB blog. If you are in support of a smoke-free campus please sign our online petition.
Who we are
Hello! My name is Danae and I am a Public Health major. I have been involved with HKB since my Freshman year and am very passionate about this subject! As Co-President of HKB, my main goal is to try to enhance the health of both smokers and non-smokers, by promoting a smoke-free campus policy and providing educational programs warning about the harms of tobacco. I look forward to working with the JHU community and creating a healthier campus for all!
Hey, I’m Enrico, an HKB Co-President and a senior Molecular and Cellular Biology major from Lakeville, MA, but my passions outside of school include soccer and music. Having witnessed the effects of smoking on the health of several close friends and family members, I hope to work with the Hopkins community as a whole to help Homewood campus become a place where smoking can be prevented through proper education and where current smokers are provided with the resources they need to quit.
