What our Members are Saying
“One of the qualities of the Global Alliance that sets it apart from other organizations is its focus on doing something… I joined because I resonate with the values—the emphasis on social justice, the appreciation of diversity, and the fact that they understand that the complex issues in our society require interdisciplinary solutions.”Ryan Kilmer, PhD, Clinical-Community Psychology
“Growing up in the inner city, I developed a passion for social justice and social change… I wanted to see communities thrive, flourish… I have realized that one way to move in that direction is to join organizations and to form alliances with those who have similar interests, similar passions. The Global Alliance has a commitment to social change, particularly for the least fortunate members of society. This is one of the reasons I joined the organization.”Kendell Coker, Clinical Psychology and Law
