aAMV IS A proud supporter of

Museums Advocacy Day. 

A new Congress convenes in 2019, facing an enormous list of policy issues, including support for museums. Together as a field we've defeated several threats to eliminate federal agencies supporting museums, but we must keep making our case. Beyond federal funding, museums are also significantly impacted by tax reform, education policy, infrastructure legislation, and more. 

But legislators do not know how museums are impacted if they don’t hear directly from you—the museums and people they represent.

Help make sure our museum volunteers are represented in 2019.
