Advocacy Update!

PUBLIC TESTIMONY OPPORTUNITY!

Don’t miss your chance to advocate for museums this week!  Take 2 minutes and participate in the hearings Tuesday or Wednesday March 5-6 (depending on your community) to tell  the House Finance Committee that you support museum funding in the operating budget. A schedule is below – just show up at your local Legislative Information office at the appointed time for your community.

There are heaps of helpful materials on our Advocacy information page which will help you comment in support of operating budget items that fund the services and programs in the State Library Archives and Museums division, including Grants in Aid to museums statewide.

Questions? Email the Advocacy Committee
