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 lunch meet-and-greet with legislators where you will introduce the chapter and discuss current policy issues. We will then go on several in-person visits with state legislators that will be scheduled ahead of time.
