ADVOCACY RESOURCES

KNOW THE STEPS

The American Alliance of Museums suggest that you "Invite Congress to Visit Your Museum" in order to show Congress how essential museums are to their communities.

  1. Find out who represents you in Congress.
  2. Send a letter to invite them for a visit.
  3. Call the local office to find the name of the scheduler and call or email to follow up.
  4. Continue following up until a meeting can be set up.
  5. See the AAM “How to” prepare guide with what to do before, during, and after the visit.

IT'S ALL IN THE DETAILS

When advocating, use statistics and facts to help support your claims. Consider creating a one-page fact sheet listing your annual visitation, visitor statistics, mission, annual programs and events and their community impact. You can also use Museums Alaska’s economic impact survey results to help create a bigger picture for museums and cultural institutions in our state.

DO YOUR RESEARCH

Two new groundbreaking reports from the American Alliance of Museums reveal indisputable evidence that museums contribute more to the United States economy than previously thought and have widespread public support that transcends political affiliations and geographic locations.

WE'RE IN THIS TOGETHER

Advocacy can be more effective and so much more fun when you work with another organization. Find a local partner to help you share the load or reach out to an industry partner:
