NDA letter to Congress

Background on Arts Advocacy Day
As an Arts Advocacy Day National Co-Sponsor, the National Dance Association joins America's leading organizations seeking enlightened cultural policies through a strong united message to the United States Congress and administration.
Once a year, Americans for the Arts organizes a two day arts awareness and advocacy event in Washington, DC. Participants learn about arts issues circulating on Capitol Hill and how to efficiently lobby Congress for increased public funding for the arts. They meet with attendees from their states to strategize how best to reap the benefits from these Congressional visits. The second day commences with the Congressional Arts Breakfast on Capitol Hill with talks by Members of Congress and celebrities as well as the presentation of the Congressional Arts Leadership Award.
This assembly rallies advocates to action as they prepare for lobbying their state delegations. For more information on Arts Advocacy Day, contact Americans for the Arts.
