MPA's Commitment to Justice and Advocacy

The Maryland Psychological Association Board of Directors acknowledges the many colleagues who have been and/or have encountered clients, students, or colleagues who have been profoundly affected by the divisive events of the last several months in this country. The APA Code of Ethics states that we should work to, "minimize harm wherever it is unforeseeable and unavoidable". As psychologists, we not only advocate for the use of psychological science for the creation of policies that promote public good - particularly for those who, due to their identities, are disenfranchised and marginalized - but we do not stand idly by while science is misused or ignored to further marginalize disenfranchised groups. Click here for full statement.
