Today is National Arts Advocacy Day!


Today, Americans for the Arts and the Arts Action Fund celebrate National Arts Advocacy Day, part of the National Arts Action Summit, with thousands of arts advocates across the country and hundreds of partnering state, local and national arts and arts education organizations.

If you can’t join us in Washington, DC today, then join us by taking two minutes to let your member of Congress know that you support the arts!

Today, more than 500 dedicated arts supporters from 44 states will come together in Washington, DC for the 29thannual Arts Advocacy Day, the only national event that brings together a broad cross section of America’s cultural and civic organizations.  
Participating in events are R&B singer Ledisi and guitarist and composer Kaki King.

These hundreds of arts advocates represent a united effort to tell Capitol Hill how important the arts are to our communities, how much arts education means to our future, and how the arts improve our daily lives. With 89 national partnering                organizations, Arts Advocacy Day helps shape this united arts message to Congress.
