ACPA has a proud tradition of advocating for and advancing the voices of all of members of our profession. ACPA Coalitions & Networks are at the forefront of issues of inclusion and social justice and are unique in that they represent and act as advocates for the social identities of the ACPA community. Coalitions & Networks represent who we are. They provide mentoring opportunities, promote relevant scholarship, produce publications, and sponsor programs and socials during the Annual Convention.
