Legislative Institute


Suicide Prevention Action Network USA (SPAN USA) advocates will be engaging in training on February 26th and going to Capitol Hill on February 27th and asking their members of Congress to cosponsor H.R. 4897 and its Senate companion (S. 1854). To join other suicide prevention advocates for these meetings, along with a Hill luncheon, tour of the Capitol and to view a display of Lifekeeper Memory Quilts on Capitol Hill, register for the Legislative Institute. Participants in this year's Legislative Institute will also have the opportunity to join our annual Friend for Life reception. Invited guests include Senator Gordon Smith, Senator Tom Harkin, Representative Leonard Boswell, and Representative Jim Ramstad. Also Award Winning Actress Marcia Gay Harden has been invited to join us after her prominent roles in the movies Canvas and Rails & Ties. You may know her from other films such as Mona Lisa Smile, Mystic River, Meet Joe Black or Space Cowboys. The regular registration deadline is January 31, so sign-up now!
