Advocacy

The American Alliance of Museums works to unite the country’s museums from art museums to zoos. The Alliance helps museums tell our story and promotes a deeper understanding of museums with policymakers, the press and the public.

Museums Advocacy Day 2015
Feb. 23-24, Washington D.C.

Museums Advocacy Day is a unique and powerful opportunity to network with colleagues and bring a united message directly to Capitol Hill, but you don't have to be in Washington, D.C. to join the effort and make an impact.

House and Senate Support for the IMLS Office of Museum Services

As reported in recent Alliance Advocacy Alerts, U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) and U.S. Representatives Paul Tonko (D-NY), Leonard Lance (R-NJ), Louise Slaughter (D-NY) and David McKinley (R-WV) recently circulated letters urging the House and Senate Appropriations Committees to provide robust funding in FY 2016 for the Office of Museum Services (OMS) at the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS).

Thank you to the many advocates who called, emailed and sent letters to legislators asking them to support this important effort!

We are working with the champion offices to gather final letters and signatories, and will report out the results of this year's effort soon.
