Your Political Action Committee (PAC) is Your Future

What is the CAL-PT-PAC?

The phrase "talk is cheap" is more than just a cliché in today’s society. It is the way the world, especially politics, operates. Your legislators are in a very difficult position. They are receiving messages from hundreds of healthcare providers, including physical therapists, chiropractors, OTs and MDs. Legislators receive conflicting arguments on a daily basis: one side presenting their argument on an issue, the other side giving opposing facts on the same issue, with each side believing that they are correct and that the other group is woefully misinformed or trying to get away with something. By financially supporting candidates that understand the issues surrounding the practice of physical therapy we assure a thriving presence in the State Capitol.


By financially supporting your CAL-PT-PAC you will ensure that a single voice dedicated to protecting and advancing the profession will be heard where it is needed most, the State Capitol. Your CAL-PT-PAC is here to help support the most knowledgeable legislators who realize the services you provide to the community are extremely beneficial. By supporting "friends of physical therapy" you will make sure that those in power know how important your profession is to the health of our communities.


Maintaining a financially strong political action committee is the best way to ensure that your profession stays healthy and strong. Donate TODAY!

Join Us for CAL-PT-PAC's Day of Giving on November 27, 2018

The CAL-PT-PAC is committed to advancing the profession of physical therapy by raising money to lobby for health policy that benefits the consumers of physical therapy services in California. However, this is only possible with your support. With your help, we could reach our goal of $5,000!

On November 27th, we will host a texting campaign to raise funds to continue our strong lobby. Our campaign will run throughout the day, and funds raised will go towards lobbying against legislation such as AT Scope Expansion. To ensure you receive our messages, please send our keyword "PACDOG18" to 41444 via text.
If you're too excited for this event and can't wait until November 27th to support the CAL-PT-PAC, you can submit your donation here on our online donation form. Click here to view the Day of Giving Fundraising Thermometer.
