Arts Advocacy Day relies on strength in numbers. We are all stronger together, and we would love to have you as a partner.

Become a Grassroots Partner

Cultural, civic, and education organizations with local, state, or regional interests are encouraged to become Grassroots Partners. Not only do Grassroots Partners receive national recognition for their advocacy leadership efforts on Capitol Hill in March, but they also are invited to participate in special conference call policy briefings throughout the year.

Play your part and register your organization as a State and Local Grassroots Partner to add your name in support of this year's event and help sponsor the training of arts advocates! National service organizations are not eligible for this registration level and are encouraged to register as National Cosponsors. To register as a Grassroots Partner, one must currently serve as a staff member, or board member, of their organization.
