Our team is committed to advocating for our clients, patients and our fellow music therapists. This includes in healthcare, education and the community, in order to increase access to services for all. Continued recognition for our profession increases through educating our state and federal representatives, connecting with universities and future professionals, and advocating for the profession of music therapy in public policy. Tara McConnell has served on the California State Task Force since 2009, and was chair from 2011-2016.
How can you help? If you or a family member have benefitted from music therapy services, please reach out to your state representatives and share your story. You can find your CA representatives here: https://findyourrep.legislature.ca.gov/
