    Hello Supporters of Licensure in New Jersey,

    Thank you so much for your advocacy. Many of you sent emails and letters to Senator Pou's office over the past few months. Your voices were heard and really helped to put this bill up for vote.

    The Drama and Dance/Movement Therapy Licensing Act, Bill S675 / A1220, passed the Senate Commerce Committee today!

    Thank you Tina Erfer and Brooke Campbell for representing in Trenton today. It truly takes a community to make change and we are well on our way!

    Stay tuned for what you can do to help expedite the next step, which is moving through the Senate Budget and Appropriations Committee.

    Sincerely,
    NJ Drama and Dance/Movement Therapy Licensure Task Force
