Dear Governor Murphy,

My name is __________________. I am a (drama therapist, or dance/movement therapist, or supporter of Bill S675/A1220).

Drama therapists and dance/movement therapists work in a wide range of settings including: substance abuse and addiction recovery programs, psychiatric and medical hospitals, and schools for children with special needs.

This bill will license Drama Therapy and Dance/Movement Therapy in NJ and will regulate these highly effective professions in order to protect the public from untrained people who may do harm to the most vulnerable citizens of NJ. It will also make these services much more accessible to those in need.

Thank you in advance for supporting the Drama Therapists and Dance/Movement Therapists Licensing Act (S675/A1220) by signing this bill into law.

Sincerely yours,
