Museums Advocate for Funding on Capitol Hill

On February 23-24, 2015, the seventh annual Museum Advocacy Day, sponsored by the American Alliance of Museums (AAM), will see more than 250 staff members, board members, volunteers, supporters and other professionals advocate for federal funding. Museums invest more than $2 billion in education, welcome more than 55 million school children and 850 million visitors annually, and inject $21 billion into the economy. Members of Congress will be honored for their support. For more information regarding the event and museum advocates, visit here.
