Annual Advocacy Forum
Save the Date for the 11th Annual Advocacy Forum: June 7-10, 2020
Each year, the Advocacy Forum brings together AFSP Field Advocates, chapter volunteers, and staff to network, share the latest research, and engage members of Congress in discussion on important suicide prevention issues. Attendance at the Forum is paid for by our local AFSP Chapters, who send their top advocacy volunteers and chapter leaders to represent AFSP each year in Washington, D.C.
Registration will open closer to the event. In the meantime, please save the date for this important and impactful event.▲ Back to Top

Again in 2019, AFSP held a Virtual Form for those who could not attend in person. The Virtual Forum streamed live video from the event and gave viewers the opportunity to engage with the event’s featured speakers and experts in the fields of suicide prevention and mental health. Virtual Forum participants also urged their own members of Congress to make suicide prevention a national priority.▲ Back to Top
