Montgomery, Alabama – February 6, 2014

At the second annual State Capitol Day held by the AFSP-Alabama Chapter, attendees gathered at the Alabama State House where we hosted a Meet and Greet buffet breakfast for our state legislators.  Our Field Advocates and Chapter volunteers also visited over 100 legislative offices and distributed information about AFSP and the suicide prevention efforts we are supporting in Alabama.  We are currently working to try to get monies appropriated in the state budget for suicide prevention in Alabama schools.  As an added bonus, AFSP volunteers had the opportunity to hear Governor Bentley address Senators and Representatives in a joint session on military issues!  We are so appreciative of all of the volunteers who came to Montgomery to meet with legislators on behalf of AFSP.  It truly was an amazing day!
