Join the Cause: Speak Up for Museums
You can empower every museum professional and supporter by providing access to year-round advocacy tools and information so they can make the case for museums, understand the issues, and share stories of community impact with Congress, state, and local elected officials.
Over the course of the pandemic, our field generated unparalleled levels of advocacy for museums and spurred legislative action resulting in billions of dollars in financial relief that enabled many museums to survive and saved thousands of museum jobs during the pandemic.

Your voice matters. You don’t have to be in Washington, D.C. to make the case for museums. Repeatedly, advocates have secured bipartisan Congressional support for federal agencies supporting museums and defeated efforts to eliminate federal cultural agencies (IMLS, NEA and NEH). Your support will help advocates continue to make the case for museums.
The American Alliance of Museums (AAM) is the only organization representing the entire museum field, from art and history museums to science centers and zoos. Since 1906, we have been championing museums through advocacy and providing museum professionals with the resources, knowledge, inspiration, and connections they need to move the field forward. Thank you for supporting the cause of museums!
