Enlisting one million arts advocates to mobilize support for the arts and arts education Join for Free!
Starting on Saturday, July 31 and continuing until Saturday, September 18, Americans for the Arts Action Fund will coordinate a “50 States 50 Days” initiative that supports local advocacy activities in all 50 states and in as many congressional districts as possible. This summer, the Arts Action Fund is urging arts advocates to use their incredible arts institutions at home to convey their message about the arts in a setting that reinforces themes of economic development; jobs in the arts; arts education; and partnerships between artists, institutions, and local policymakers.
Americans for the Arts Action Fund staff have prepared a Powerpoint and video presentation to walk you through the easy steps to producing an event and using the 50 States 50 Days website to help you spread the word to your community, manage your event, and download materials you can use to advocate for the arts and arts education. This is an important opportunity for you to engage congressional district staff and reinforce your role as a ready resource for members of Congress, their staff, and constituents.
