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.

Updated Nonprofit Voter Resources

The Alliance shares a selection of resources available for nonprofit museums, organizations and their staffs. Find easy-to-use, detailed information about what you and your staff can and cannot do, checklists for voter engagement and permissible activities, fact sheets on nonprofits and ballot measures, social media guidelines and links to voter registration and polling information.

Get all of the details in our latest Alliance Advocacy Alert.
