As a recognized public advocate for psychology and social justice, I’ve been profiled in Newsweek and Buzzfeed and interviewed by NPR, CBC, BBC, Democracy Now, Al Jazeera, Huffington Post Live, New York Times, Wall Street Journal, The Guardian and The Washington Post. My media experience would add a powerful advocacy tool to the Office of APA President.
