OUR
STORY

 

Three moms—Dina Alessi, Meredith Berkman, and Dorian Fuhrman-joined forces in the spring of 2018 when they realized that their teen sons and their friends were JUULing. They began researching the topic and quickly realized that youth use of flavored e-cigarettes, and JUUL in particular, had reached what then-FDA Commissioner Dr. Scott Gottlieb and US Surgeon General Jerome Adams ultimately classified as an “epidemic”. These three women—with nine kids aged 19 to 7 between them—founded Parents Against Vaping E-cigarettes (PAVe) as a grassroots response to the most serious adolescent public-health crisis our country has faced in decades.
