It’s not too late! You can still sign up to participate in Humanities Advocacy Day and Art Advocacy Day!

Once again, the College Art Association will be a national co-sponsor of Humanities Advocacy Day and Arts Advocacy Day; we strongly encourage our members to participate. Both events help to support increased funding for the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) and the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH).

Participants in both Humanities Advocacy Day and Arts Advocacy Day will receive legislative and policy briefings and advocacy training before making group visits to members of Congress. CAA’s deputy director will be available to schedule all visits, and CAA staff members will accompany participants in Washington on congressional visits.

Humanities Advocacy Day will take place March 15-16, 2004. Held in Washington, D.C., this event provides a unique opportunity for concerned citizens to communicate to Congress the vital importance of federal support for research and education in the humanities.

Arts Advocacy Day will take place March 19-21, 2004. Also held in the nation’s capital, this event brings together a broad cross-section of America’s national cultural organizations to underscore the importance of developing strong public funding for the arts, humanities, and arts education, as well as other programs within the federal government that have an impact on the visual and performing arts.
