Advocate for Music Education

NAMM members and partner advocates are encouraged to get back on the music education "advocacy train" and join us in Washington, D.C. on September 14 to hold in-person meetings with Members of Congress and/or their Education Legislative Aides. NAMM staff will provide support in scheduling meetings as well as all training materials and information packets, or "leave behinds," with a detailed "ask" for federal action in support of music education in schools.  Participation in NAMM Hill Day and pre-event advocacy training is FREE for registrants. All travel related expenses (transportation, housing, meals) are on your own.  NAMM will host a reception the evening of September 14 to honor your commitment to music education advocacy.
