Arts Advocacy Day brings together a broad cross section of America's cultural and civic organizations, along with more than 500 grassroots advocates from across the country to underscore the importance of developing strong public policies and appropriating increased public funding for the arts. Join the excitement, let’s bring our collective voices together for AATE.
