Advocacy Day

Due to the Legislature’s urgent focus on putting COVID-19 policies into place, NAMI Massachusetts has decided to postpone Advocacy Day for now.

While we were working hard on converting our Advocacy Day to a virtual format, it’s clear that our legislators are extremely busy drafting laws to help mitigate the impact of COVID-19 on our communities. It’s important that we respect the urgency of that effort and not continue to ask for their time for phone conferences for April 3rd.

 

At some point, the State House will get back to “normal” business addressing this year’s budget and ongoing legislative activity. We will reschedule Advocacy Day as soon as that happens, so stay tuned! We remain committed to ensuring our voices are heard at the State House on our current priorities (read details), Thank you so much for being a willing advocate for our community and we look forward to seeing you sign up again once we reschedule.

 

We will continue to keep you posted. If you have not signed up for the Advocacy newsletter, please do! Stay tuned for advocacy alerts, especially as we move towards the House budget season
