Thank you, Arts Advocates!
In the midst of the pandemic, you answered our call to urge your legislators to support the arts. More than 430 people registered to be part of our 117 virtual meetings with nearly half the members of the Minnesota House and Senate. Your stories and presence make a difference!
These videos are great to share and enjoy again:

Our work is not done yet – please send a follow up thank you note to your legislators remind them why arts funding is important to you. If you were not able to join us for Advocacy Week, please send a follow up message using the tools in this alert.
Please encourage your friends, board members of organizations where you work, and volunteers/patrons of your favorite arts groups to contact their legislators, too. You may simply forward this email message to them.
I want to give a special shout out to our Arts Advocacy Week Team Leaders:
