Division-19 Stands

Against Racism

Division 19 believes we are stronger together. This means that now, more than ever, we need to not only support and care for one another but also work together to enact positive change. We will continue to promote human welfare through advocacy, education, research, and training. Racism, discrimination and marginalization have no place in our Society. By listening, collaborating, and taking positive action, we can and will be stronger together.

We are proactive in our service to psychology and the public at large and we ensure that our services adhere to the highest ethical standards of our profession.
