Advocacy Resources

The Alliance offers several resources for building advocacy skills, learning about Congress, making your case, and getting involved in museum advocacy. Resources include sample case statements, tips to meeting and communicating with elected officials, and online learning on a number of advocacy issues.


Other Resources

Advocacy

The Texas Commission on the Arts shares an advocacy toolkit that may be useful to small museums. It shares information on case statements, guidelines for writing and visiting decision-makers, lobbying and the law for nonprofits, and samples to help communicate with decision-makers.
