NAMI Lobby Day 2017 - February 20th, 2017
NAMI Lobby Day is completely full! WE MAY NOT BE ABLE TO ACCOMODATE WALK-INS.
Join NAMI Washington members from across the state for our annual lobby day in Olympia. NAMI members and supporters are the most effective people to educate legislators about mental illness and the need to cahnge our current "mental illness" system to a "mental health" system. Our lobby day will include a morning breakfast and issues update and advocacy skills training, and the afternoon will include a legislative luncheon reception in Room 112 of the Legislative Building on the Capital Campus.
8:30 - 9:00 AM: Arrival and continental breakfast
9:00 - 10:30 AM: Welcome, Legislative Issues, and Advocacy Skills
10:45- 3:00 PM: Legislative Visits
12:30 PM: Legislative Luncheon Reception
(please note that the schedule could change)
Scheduling Legislative Appointments
We ask that all attendees work with their local affiliate to schedule their legislative appointments. Please note that our morning session will include information about NAMI Washington's legislative priority bills, and you will also pick up materials for your legislators. If possible, please try to schedule your appointments for no earlier than 10:45 AM. There are some affiliates which share legislators - if you know your legislative district is shared with another affiliate it would be helpful to collaborate when scheduling your appointments. NAMI Washington staff can try to help with this.
