APA Invited, Participates in White House Summit on Working Families

President champions priority issues in APA's advocacy efforts


On June 23, 2014, the American Psychological Association participated in the first ever White House Summit on Working Families. The summit brought together key policy makers from the executive branch and Congress, think tanks, scientific organizations and advocates to discuss pressing workplace policies, such as paid family medical leave, paid sick leave, flexible work schedules, and minimum wage. APA has a history of public interest advocacy on all these issues and was pleased to join the president and first lady, Vice President Joe Biden and Jill Biden, EdD, Secretary of Labor Thomas Perez and others in this important discussion.

Helping Americans achieve financial security and independence represents a longstanding priority for APA. To participate in these and other advocacy efforts, please sign up for APA's Federal Action Network.
