Advocacy

The American Alliance of Museums works to unite the country’s museums from art museums to zoos. The Alliance helps museums tell our story and promotes a deeper understanding of museums with policymakers, the press and the public.

Urge the U.S. Senate to Confirm Nominee to Lead IMLS

On March 10, President Obama announced Dr. Kathryn “Kit” Matthew as his choice to serve as director of the federal Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS). Dr. Matthew must now be confirmed by the U.S. Senate.

Will you take two minutes to ask your Senators to confirm Dr. Kathryn Matthew as the next IMLS director?


Record Support in Congress for Museum Funding 

Museum advocates: you did it again. Over the last few weeks, members of Congress had the opportunity to support funding for the Office of Museum Services (OMS) at the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) by signing letters calling for robust funding for OMS.

This year, a record 132 Representatives and 30 Senators joined these letters.

Learn more in our recent Alliance Advocacy Alert and take a minute to thank your legislators over social media.
