Join us on NAMI Lobby Day in Olympia
NAMI Pierce County members and supporters will be joining NAMI members from throughout Washington in Olympia on Monday, February 20. Our NAMI Pierce County teams will be meeting with all our Pierce County legislators to talk about mental illness and the need to charge our current “mental illness” system to a “mental health system.”
You can learn more about NAMI Lobby Day and the NAMI Washington legislative agenda on the NAMI Washington Lobby Day webpage.
Here’s what you need to do to join us in Olympia.
- RSVP to NAMI Washington that you will be attending. They need to know how many will be attending so that they make adequate plans.
- Email Bob Winslow at firstname.lastname@example.org that you will be attending. Bob will team you up with two or three others and ask your team to arrange visits with a small number of legislators.
- Come to the February 15 NAMI Pierce County Gathering for a potluck dinner, fellowship, and NAMI Lobby Day preparation. The potluck starts at 6:00 pm at TACID (6315 S 19th St. in Tacoma).
- Join your NAMI Pierce County teammates in Olympia on February 20 for the NAMI events and to visit your team’s legislators.
