The American Alliance of Museums works to unite the country’s museums from art museums to zoos. Each year, approximately 850 million visitors pass through our hallways and experience important lessons about the past, present and future.
The Alliance helps museums tell our story and promotes a deeper understanding of museums with policymakers, the press and the public.
Museums Advocacy Day • Feb. 24-25
Museums Advocacy Day is a powerful, annual field-wide opportunity to make a unified case to Congress in support of museums. Send a letter to Congress in support of IMLS funding, protecting the charitable deduction or about the role of museums in education. Get our tools and get involved today.
Once again, in conjunction with Museums Advocacy Day, Representatives Paul Tonko (D-NY), Leonard Lance (R-NJ), Louise Slaughter (D-NY) and Michael Grimm (R-NY) are circulating a letter urging the House Appropriations Committee to provide robust funding in FY 2015 for the Office of Museum Services (OMS) at the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS). Contact your Representative today.
The deadline to sign on to this letter is TUESDAY, MARCH 25, 2014.
President Obama released his budget proposal
for Fiscal Year 2015, and it includes many provisions that are important to museums. See
