Public Policy Responses
Our Public Policy Committee works with counselors, state branches, other divisions, and the American Counseling Association to provide responses to Human Rights violations and make members aware what actions they can take to help.
Gene was recently on The Voice of Counseling podcast with Brian Banks, ACA's Chief Government Affairs & Public Policy Officer, for an episode called Dismantling Hate Against the Transgender Community - the Power of Advocacy – United for Transgender Rights Part 1. Part 2 with Dr. Chaney and Jay Kaplan is also excellent. There are links below if you would like to give it a listen.
