A message from NAMI Iowa: Join Our Cause!
There are many newly elected legislators and a new party in control of the Senate. Republicans now have control of the Iowa House, the Iowa Senate and the Governor’s mansion.
We have a full agenda of priorities that we know would make the Iowa mental health system better if enacted. We are optimistic that lawmakers have heard enough about the problems in the system, the frustration, anger and pain, and are ready to move toward solutions. YOU can be part of that process!
1. Read and get familiar with our legislative priorities. They are only one page, but we have lots of background information on each one to help you learn more. Just ask!
2. Sign up to receive our regular legislative updates HERE. We will also offer conference calls and webinars to learn more about issues and how to be an effective advocate. Being a part of our Advocates group will keep you in the know!
3. Mark your calendars for our Day on the Hill March 29th. We will have education, inspiration and a chance to meet with your legislators. Watch for more information in the weeks ahead.
