Public Comment Action and Workshop

MACG invites you to join the St Anthony Women's Justice Circle in an upcoming opportunity to take collective action on mental health. The Board of Licensed Professional Counselors and Therapists are requesting public comment on the proposed reduction to the licensed professional counselors (LPC) and licensed marriage and family therapists (LMFT) supervised clinical experience requirements for licensure. These changes would help many to become licensed more quickly in Oregon and grow the pool of mental health professionals that can meet the growing demand for mental health treatment. In particular, this change could also increase the number of providers from diverse backgrounds. 

Join us Monday, January 23rd at 7 PM for an online, bilingual (Spanish/English) workshop where we will...
  • learn more about this proposal 
  • Share a template and example public comment 
  • Write and submit our public comments TOGETHER as a community.
  • Discuss how this action is part of a larger campaign we're building

 here. The zoom details are below. Please pass this open invitation along to everyone in your networks who might be interested in improving access to mental health. I look forward to hearing from everyone!

We Build Leaders

"Being a MACG leader gave me the confidence to do this advocacy to make my community a safer and more just place.   I never saw myself as someone who could do something like this, but now I do, and it’s because of MACG."
