Museums Advocacy Day 2016 Highlights
On Feb. 22-23, 2016 museum advocates gathered in Washington, DC for the eighth annual Museums Advocacy Day:
- Just over 250 advocates made 368 visits to members of Congress to share information about the value of museums to local communities.
- See the photos, including the Congressional Breakfast, Meetings on Capitol Hill and Congressional Reception.
- We recognized two Congressional honorees: Sen. Patty Murray (D-WA) and Rep.Tim Murphy (R-PA) and two Great American Museum Advocates, Kai and Karla Bailey-Smith, and several Star Advocates.
- See the wrap-up article in the May/June issue of Museum magazine to read more about these honorees and our Museums Advocacy Day speakers.
