In this Alliance Advocacy Alert:

Register Today for Museums Advocacy Day 2022!

There’s still time to join us for Museums Advocacy Day on February 28-March 1–register by January 21!

When you register, you’ll have access to:

»  A library of videos to inspire your advocacy work and get you up to speed on what you need to know.

»  Webinars each Wednesday in February (plus, recordings if you can’t join live):

  • February 2: Strategic Storytelling: Communicating Your Museum’s Impact
  • February 9: Making the Case with Critical Data
  • February 16: Advocacy Deep Dive: How to be an Effective Museum Advocate
  • February 23: Preparing for Capitol Hill: Setting the Stage

»  A robust February 28 program with all of the essentials you need

»  Congressional meetings, scheduled by AAM, taking place on March 1 (if selected during your registration)

Legislators do not know how their decisions affect museums and museum workers if they don’t hear directly from advocates like you. Together, we’ve defeated several threats to eliminate federal agencies supporting museums and helped secure billions of dollars in federal relief funding for museums. Don’t miss this unique and powerful field-wide opportunity to make your voice heard, connect with hundreds of advocates across the country, and build your own advocacy skills.

Museums are essential to communities and to helping society address many of our most pressing issues. Ensure Congress knows how critical museums are to our nation’s education system, economy, and recovery from the pandemic.


Learn more about the updated registration options, schedule-at-a-glance and FAQ for 2022.

Unable to join Museums Advocacy Day Congressional meetings? You can still build your advocacy skills and ensure you are up-to-date on the most important issues facing the museum field by registering for the Advocacy Program Without Congressional Meetings package.

Contact Congress: Urge Your Legislators to Include Museums in COVID-19 Relief

Discussions have begun in the U.S. Congress concerning the possibility of additional COVID-19 relief for hard hit industries. While enactment of another relief package is far from certain, please take two minutes to use our template letter to urge your Representative and Senators to include museums in any forthcoming COVID-19 relief.

Tell Congress: Act Now – Support Relief Funding
for Museums Impacted by COVID-19
