What is Psychology PAC?

Psychology PAC is the political action committee (PAC) of American Psychological Services Inc. Located in Washington, D.C., Psychology PAC is bipartisan; we contribute to cndidates of both political parties and we do not contribute to presidential candidates. 

Your Contribution Makes a Difference

Our PAC demonstrates that psychology supports those candidates for congressional office who stand for psychology..

Through Psychology PAC, members have an opportunity to make their voices heard concerning issues vitally important to psychology and the mental health industry. Psychology PAC allows us to fully participate in the American democratic process. Your voluntary contribution will help strengthen our collective voice.

Other key legislative activities include direct lobbying on Capitol Hill and grassroots psychologists' engagement with their members of Congress.
