aAMV IS A proud supporter of Museums Advocacy Day
February 24-25, 2020 in Washington, DC
Together as a field, we’ve defeated several threats to eliminate federal agencies supporting museums, but we must keep making our case to Congress. Legislators do not know how their decisions affect museums if they don’t hear directly from you—the museums and people they represent. Join in on February 24-25 on Capitol Hill and be a part of our collective movement.
Museums Advocacy Day is a unique opportunity to network with peers from your region, hear from federal agency and nonprofit leaders and build your own professional skills. The program includes two full days of issue briefings and advocacy training, networking with peers from your state and region, and visits to your legislators’ offices on Capitol Hill, scheduled by AAM. Gain advocacy strategies and techniques you can use on Capitol Hill, with your city council and state legislators, with local and regional funders, and to advocate for yourself throughout your career.
Museums Advocacy Day is inspiring, energizing and practical. Unite with others from the museum field as one voice to reaffirm our value, collective contributions, and aspirations.
