Today is the National Arts Advocacy Day and arts advocates from almost every state are in Washington, D.C. to meet with their members of Congress and urge them to back policies that support the arts in our communities. 

You can join the hundreds of arts advocates from home or work today by sending messages to your members of Congress and urging them to support a variety of issues. It only takes a couple minutes to take action. The issues Dance/USA works on include: 

Dance/USA is a National Partner for Arts Advocacy Day and represents its membership and the field on the Legislative Planning Committee, which works to revise and update the policy briefs each year.
