Music education action

As local partners in music education, orchestras advocate for all students to have access to a complete arts education in the schools.  At the federal level, orchestras are seeking increased funding for arts education and better data collection at the U.S. Department of Education.  Orchestras are also weighing in as Congress rewrites the No Child Left Behind Act, the bill that determines how the U.S. Department of Education supports our nation’s schools, students, and communities. 

Contacting Congress is simple and will make a difference. We have prepared two advocacy campaigns with essential background, talking points, and a template letter for you to personalize your communication with policymakers. Please note that identical copies of your letter will go to both of your Senators and your Representative.
