With the stakes higher than ever, we need to ensure Congress understands the role your museum plays in the community.
Will you join the cause and invite them to see your important programs and exhibits in person?
Dozens of legislators – from Scranton, PA to Richmond, CA and Lewes, DE to Ft. Lauderdale, FL – have been invited to visit museums of all types around the country.
AAM’s Advocacy tools make it easy to participate. The full “How To” guide helps you prepare for every step of your visit, including how to approach the office, scheduling the meeting, involving your trustees and even a suggested timeline.
- See recent Alliance Advocacy Alerts and just-updated Issue Briefs to get caught up on issues affecting museums.
- Check out who from your state joined the Fieldwide Letter to Congress and print a copy to share at your visits.
- And don’t forget to use #InviteCongress on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
Questions? Let us know. We can’t wait to hear about your #InviteCongress visits!
