Advocacy Alerts

Nothing has a more powerful impact on members of Congress than hearing directly from their constituents.

Our advocacy program will help you connect with your legislators. 

We’ll let you know about breaking news and key moments in the policy process so you can weigh-in with elected officials and federal agencies about legislation and regulation that directly impacts museums.
