Museum Advocacy Day 2020
February 24 - February 25
Join us by standing up for museums during Museums Advocacy Day 2020!
Museums have a continued fight ahead of us. Today’s national policy debates will impact our museums for years to come. Congress faces an enormous list of policy issues to consider, many of which can have a lasting impact on museums. Beyond federal funding, there’s tax reform, education policy, infrastructure legislation, and other issues that significantly affect museums’ ability to serve our communities. Legislators do not know how their decisions affect museums if they don’t hear directly from you—the people they represent. As constituents, you are in the best position to create lasting change. Constituent visits have a greater influence on legislators than any other group or strategy. It’s up to you to make the case for museums to Congress and tell your story of why museums are important to you and your community!
Museums Advocacy Day is an inspiring, energetic, and impactful event taking place February 24-25, 2020. Be a part of our collective movement! You don’t have to be on Capitol Hill to advocate for museums in your community, and across the nation. Learn how to advocate from anywhere! Join the conversation on social media using #MuseumsAdvocacy2020.
