Annual Advocacy Forum
10th Annual Advocacy Forum: June 9-12, 2019
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.

Again in 2019, anyone can join us online via Facebook LIVE on Monday, June 10 for the Virtual Advocacy Forum. The Virtual Forum will stream live video from the event and give 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 will also urge their own members of Congress to make suicide prevention a national priority by ending the day with our evening CALL TO ACTION.
