Please join us for two-days of education and lobbying in Washington, D.C., as we amplify the voices of forensic nurses on the Hill. Our goal is to have #100ForensicRNs on the Hill.
Day One (Leadership Day) will help forensic nurses develop their voices to better communicate to legislators, funders and other supporters the work we do and our impact on patients and communities. Earn up to 6 contact hours. All experience levels are welcome.
Day Two (Lobby Day) we take to the Hill, using the skills developed on day one to talk with legislators and their staff about the issues important to forensic nurses and the patients for whom we care. No prior lobbying experience is needed. Not sure you feel comfortable lobbying solo? We can pair you with a more experienced colleague to mentor you in the process. Our goal is to have #100ForensicRNs on the Hill.

The 2008 state law requires emergency rooms to give information about so-called “morning-after pills” to victims of sexual assault, dispense the drugs at their request and train staff about the drugs.
Runaway and homeless youth agencies and domestic violence victims’ services providers share a mutual goal: enhancing the safety and healing of young people living situations marked by violence and abuse. Recognizing and understanding the intersection of runaway and homeless youth and intimate partner violence (including dating, domestic and sexual violence) is critical to creating meaningful services and effective intervention and prevention strategies for both homelessness and relationship abuse, and in creating partnerships between the programs working with youth at risk.
