Lobby Day in Olympia, Tuesday, Feb. 25, 2014
Plan to join us for a day of raising awareness and advocating for youth suicide prevention in Washington State. Youth Suicide Prevention Program (YSPP), in partnership with Forefront and the National Alliance on Mental Illness, will gather in Olympia to meet with legislators and let them know that their constituents care deeply about the issue of youth suicide, the need for preventative efforts and the impact that the tragic death of a young person has on communities across the state.
Several important bills on suicide prevention and mental health are in the legislature this session, and need your grassroots support.
We encourage you to exercise your power to be an agent of change for at risk youth in Washington State.
Go to http://app.leg.wa.gov/DistrictFinder, enter your address to find your representatives, and email a request for an appointment to meet with your Senator between 11:00 – 4:00 on February 25th.
When: Tuesday, February 25, 2014 - 8:30am to 4:00pm
Where: United Church of Christ 110 11th Ave SE Olympia, WA 98501
Who: Suicide survivors, community leaders, mental health providers, educators and anyone who cares about the healthy future of young people in Washington State
