PPA is committed to advocating for psychologists with the state and federal legislatures and regulatory bodies. Most of the public policy advances made by psychology in Pennsylvania have been due to the advocacy efforts of PPA. The nature of these efforts is described in the PPA Public Policy Page.
This section introduces you to the public policy advocacy efforts of PPA by including information on pending legislation, PPA's annual Advocacy Day, and the APA Legislative Center, whereby psychologists can support national legislative efforts. In addition, readers can learn about PennPsyPAC, the affiliate of PPA which makes political contributions to candidates who support psychology's public agenda. Finally, this section includes information related to how psychologists can find their legislators.
