Tell your senator: Sign on as co-lead for the STANDUP Act
In Iowa, suicide is the fourth leading cause of death for children aged 5-14. Passing the STANDUP Act could help. This bill would encourage select states to expand access to evidence-based suicide prevention training, like the ones offered by Sandy Hook Promise, to every student in grades six through 12. Sen. Joni Ernst could be a leader in suicide prevention by cosponsoring the STANDUP Act.
Please send a note to Sen. Ernst and ask her to co-lead the Senate version of the STANDUP Act – HR586 in the House – to save lives across the country.
