Join us for our 3rd annual AFSP Georgia Capitol Day. AFSP State Capitol Days bring together passionate volunteers to advocate for state policy changes that will improve mental health and prevent suicide. We will meet with our state legislators during the event to:
- Share with them why suicide prevention is important to YOU and to your community
- Educate them about the work being done in your community to prevent suicide
- Teach them what more must be done to prevent suicide.
The event will include a brief training session on the basics of an effective advocacy visit and current policy issues. We will then go on several in-person visits with state legislators that will be scheduled ahead of time.
Make sure to sign up to be a Field Advocate if you are not signed up already.
A limited amount of hotel rooms for the night preceding Capitol Day (2/11) will be paid for by the AFSP Georgia chapter. This will depend on distance traveled from outside metro Atlanta and activity as a Field Advocate and/or volunteer. To apply for a room, contact Chris Owens at [email protected]
