We’d like to extend our congratulations to NAMI Alabama for winning the “Outstanding State Organization” for 2016.
The Outstanding State Organization Award is given to recognize exceptional efforts on the state level in carrying out the NAMI mission as defined by the NAMI Standard of Excellence. The Alabama office was recognized for its board leadership, governance and being a leader in their advocacy effort.

Did you know that state legislators count each email as representing the views of as many as 10 of their constituents?? Every email that we send packs a punch, so each person who contacts their legislator can make a huge difference!
Below is an action alert from NAMI Alabama which ALSO has a good example of an email draft that people can use and personalize. It really only takes about 10 minutes to write two legislators—one Alabama House representative, and one Alabama senator. Just make sure to change the “Dear Senator Whomever,” to “Dear Representative Whomever.” Please find a list of your Senators HERE.
