Have time to grab a coffee?
Do you have time to sit on a webinar for an hour to hear about best practices in advocacy?
Neither do we.
Instead, can we chat for 15 minutes?
Rebecca Farley, our Director of Policy & Advocacy wants to sit down with you for a few minutes to catch up on how you can achieve change in the nation’s capital. No ho-hum content, she just wants to share some updates and get you inspired. More importantly, she wants to hear from you and answer any questions you have before we head to our legislators offices on Hill Day, May 7.
Take a coffee break (or three) with Rebecca.
- Why Hill Day is Our Most Important Advocacy Tool (March 11th, 3:30pm EDT)
- You know why we advocate for mental health and substance use care, but did you know that meeting with members of Congress is the #1 way to create change? Rebecca will walk you through the day’s events, what you should expect, and why Hill Day is our nation’s largest, most effective advocacy opportunity for the mental health and substance use field.
