The Arts Action Fund recognizes that there is power in numbers. The more arts advocates that can be empowered, the more successful our work to advance the arts will be. We are the largest grassroots arts advocacy network in America advancing the arts on both the electoral and legislative landscapes to promote more vibrant and livable communities throughout the country. The Arts Action Fund’s goal is to enlist and mobilize citizen activists that will help ensure that arts-friendly public policies are adopted at the federal, state, and local levels.


Partnering with the Arts Action Fund is an opportunity to stand shoulder to shoulder with a larger network of individuals, institutions, and national service organizations to build one of the most powerful citizen lobbies in the United States. We will urge the President and Congress to support the National Endowment for the Arts and to retain the arts as a core academic subject in elementary and secondary education, thereby promoting creativity and innovation in communities across the country. Together, we can mobilize a true citizen-activist base that ensures our elected leaders will support policies and funding that create opportunities for every American to learn, participate in, enjoy, and benefit from the arts.
