We request your participation in the CAMFT state and federal political
action committees (PACs). The goal of the CAMFT PACs is to assist in
electing and re-electing candidates and incumbents from both political
parties to the California legislature and U.S. Congress who demonstrate
an understanding and willingness to be supportive on the issues most
important to marriage and family therapists.
It is critical to ensure that legislators who understand the issues
related to marriage and family therapists are elected and re-elected as
it is not uncommon for a CAMFT issue to re-appear each year. A classic
example of this is our quest for LMFTs to be included as Medicare
The psychologists waited 13 years before they were accepted as
Medicare providers (with the social workers tacking on to that
legislation at the same time).
Other non-physician providers waited up to 20 years before they were
included as Medicare providers.
CAMFT is 11 years into this effort and we have successfully cultivated
This demonstrates that we need to constantly build upon the foundation
of support and ensure those candidates who best understand our issues
are elected and re-elected. CAMFT has an aggressive legislative advocacy
effort in Sacramento and in Washington, D.C., but no amount of advocacy
or lobbying by CAMFT can be effective without legislators who understand
In order for us to protect, enhance, and move our profession forward,
we need your help! By combining your contribution with thousands of
other members, CAMFT’s state and federal PACs can actively support
candidates who make our issues a priority. Please donate today!
Thank you for your participation!
