CPA's Political Action Committee (CPA-PAC)
The only PAC Looking out for You
Only one organization in California is making sure lawmakers who understand the importance of psychology to the state of California are supported: The CPA-PAC. Anyone and everyone with an interest in mental health should donate to the CPA-PAC. This means psychologists, psychological grad students, vendors, suppliers and patients should all make contributions.
Protect Your Profession
California's elected officals can and do have a major impact on our profession. In today's expensive campaign climate, where a state assembly race can cost as much as $3 million, its important to make sure we support candidates who are pro-psychology. Without your support they cannot pay for campaign costs such as direct mail, tv advertising or radio ads.
It is only by working together will we protect and preserve the profesional profession of psychology. Take a pledge to encourage your colleagues to donate to the CPA-PAC.
Attend Local Fundraisers
A great way to build relationships with your local legislators is to attend a fundraiser for them in your area. Check out the below slideshow to see CPA members attending events in their areas.
If you have a question about donating to the CPA-PAC or would like to attend a fundraiser in your area please contact the PAC at firstname.lastname@example.org.
