Capwiz E-Advocacy

posted by Christopher Howard — Aug 25, 2007

Americans for the Arts, a national organization that supports the arts through private and public resource development, maintains Capwiz, an online tool that makes it easy for you to play an active role in arts-advocacy efforts at the state, local, and federal levels. E-advocacy is an easy, timely, and efficient way to communicate your views to legislators at all levels of government, and Capwiz provides the information you need to take action. Use it, and use it often–elected officials respect and respond to the input of their constituents.

Capwiz offers you extensive opportunities to:

• Explore current issues and legislation that affect the arts on both federal and state levels of government

• Send timely messages to your elected officials at the state, local, and federal levels

• Browse your legislators’ biographies, committee assignments, staff directories, and the list of contributions made to them by political action committees

• View the arts voting records of your federal representatives

• Browse a complete media guide to newspaper, television, and radio outlets in your area or state

• Find complete, up-to-the-minute election and candidate information on state, congressional, and presidential races, including candidate biographies and position statements

• Download voter registration forms and stay abreast of key dates for primary and general elections
