Arts Action Summit

Arts Action SummitThe National Arts Action Summit is your opportunity to receive crucial advocacy training from experts in the field and then put that training into practice. Hosted by Americans for the Arts in partnership with over 85 national arts organizations, the Arts Action Summit is the largest gathering of its kind, bringing together a broad cross-section of America's cultural and civic organizations. Grassroots advocates from across the country come to Washington, DC to meet with their members of Congress to garner support for issues like arts education policy, the charitable tax deduction, and funding for the National Endowment for the Arts.

Each year, ArtPride sends a delegation of advocates to represent the state of New Jersey through facetime with their legislators.
