About this event

Each year, NAMI Maryland hosts an Advocacy Day during the legislative session. This is your chance to join us virtually to meet with your legislators and share your story!

Join us on Thursday, February 10th, 2022 for a briefing before attending group meetings with your legislators. NAMI Maryland will be working with your local affiliate to make these appointments with important committees and we want to ensure everyone’s voice can be heard! Due to the nature of these meetings, space may be limited.

Then, everyone can reconvene with us to share feedback and hear from Maryland Leaders about their work and how they plan to make mental health a priority for 2022. Additional legislator meetings will be scheduled between 12:30 pm and 1:30 pm.

We strongly urge you to attend the training webinar so you can understand the structure, get talking points, and make sure you are prepared for February 10th!

Key dates and deadlines:

  • Register for Advocacy Day by Wednesday, February 2, 2022
  • Training webinar: Thursday, January 20th @ 6:30 pm
  • Materials: (talking points, meeting background, relevant bills) will be delivered via email to affiliates and all registrants on Friday, Feb 4th, so you have the weekend to review prior to Advocacy Day.

Don’t miss out and register now for what will no doubt be an incredible day of action!
