Join NCMMH in D.C to Advocate for moms.
May 17-18, 2017
Join advocates and survivors from across the country this May in Washington D.C to let congress know that mothers matter and need support.
- Meet your local representatives and share your story to give a face to maternal mental health complications and ask congress to ensure maternal mental health initiatives receive the funding they desperately need.
- Advocacy Days 2017 will include a Networking Luncheon, Congressional Briefing, and Reception on May 17th and congressional meetings on May 18th.
We encourage all advocates not to miss the Networking Luncheon on May 17 but we recognize some will be traveling so we are offering two advocacy days registration packages, one that doesn't include the luncheon on Wednesday May 17.
- $75 Full Two Days
- $60 Two Days without the Networking Luncheon
Registration and Hotel Scholarship
Want to come to DC to make a difference for moms but need a little financial help? We are offering 20 scholarships to cover hotel (1-2 nights) and registration cost. Recipients will be responsible for their own travel costs. The goals is to have as much representation from around the U.S. as possible. Apply by Tuesday 4/18. Applicants will be informed of decisions by Friday 4/21, so there is ample time for recipients to make travel arrangements. Apply, now.
