Please join us for a full day of activities in Olympia! We will help you prepare to meet with your legislators to advocate for suicide prevention and awareness.
You will have a chance to attend a Ceremony of Remembrance and Hope for a Suicide-Safer Homes Memorial installed on the Capitol lawn, recognizing the lives lost to suicide in 2015. You will also have a chance to learn intervention steps anyone can use, and to accompany us to a luncheon at the *Governor's Mansion.
*IMPORTANT: To get clearance to enter the Governor's Mansion or make appointments w/ legislators, you MUST register before Feb. 6 and bring your government-issued ID. You may attend the other events on a walk-in basis.
