Our MFTs engage in advocacy include Student Lobby Day and participating in GAMFT, which advocates for the interests and recognition of MFTs at the state level.

Lobby Day

Our students and faculty members head to Atlanta every Februrary for Lobby Day, an annual event that educates and empowers MFT students by orienting them to the legislative process. Students visit Georgia's State Capital where they meet and discuss legislation relevant to the MFT field with the Georgia State Representative and lobby Georgia lawmakers regarding GAMFT's legislative agenda. To find out more about our Georgia representatives, check out www.votesmart.org. Pictured are MFT students at the State Capital during the 2016, 2017, 2019, and 2020 Lobby Day. In the bottom right photo (2016), Representative Amy Carter is in the first row, second from the left.
