We don’t know what is ahead. We do know collective action is powerful. So how do we tap into it?
Here are 10 ❤ Ways To Prep for 2021 as a TA Advocate Leader!
Sign up for the Arts Action Fund.
Identify your elected officials. Write them and follow them on social media.
Write an op-ed in your local paper! The Americans for the Arts has a draft to get you started.
Mark your calendar to register on January 11 for National Arts Action Summit (April 5-9) & Arts Advocacy Day (April 12-16)!
Put your State Arts Advocacy Day on your calendar! (check in with your State Advocacy Captain about when it is!)
Create an advocacy video! The TA Cafe is a support system to make this happen.
Make a donation to TAMA (or ask a family/friend to make a donation). The new CARES Act increases the amount of your charitable contributions that may be tax-deductible this year and simplifies your reporting. That means your gift adds up to even more for you!
Be a STATE LEADER
