To: Karen Pence, Wife of the Vice- president

Karen Pence STOP your plan to "make people aware of what art therapy is and how it works,"

We question your intentions and qualifications. We need you to publicly take action for the rights of LGBTQIA people, people of color, Muslims, survivors of sexual assault, people with disabilities, immigrants, refugees and all people who are in danger as a result of the policies of the current administration. Art therapists care about health, human rights and social justice. Do you?

Why is this important?

To give a voice to art therapists that disagree with the national AATA organizations alliance with Karen Pence , the second lady. I am an art therapist who will be negatively affected by Pence's uneducated explanation of the profession.


Reasons for signing

  • You are aware that there is a very good chance your husband, the vice president, is gay aren't you?
  • art therapy is supposed to be healing not negativity.
  • If Karen Pence does have positive intentions to support the field of art therapy, she needs to educate herself and represent ALL of the populations we serve.
