We all have a role to play in creating a vibrant, future-facing, art-centered Milwaukee. Our elected officials at the city, county, state, and federal levels propose and pass policies that affect funding for arts and culture organizations and how receptive our city is to creatives and arts organizations. 

One of the key ways you can affect change on these issues is to speak up to the policymakers elected to represent you to let them know that you want them to support arts, culture, and creativity in Milwaukee, our region, state, and nation. 

Your elected officials represent you and your voice is incredibly important. Research consistently shows that contacts to legislators from their constituents are one of the key drivers to change a policymaker's mind on an issue. Often times, a few calls from voters are just what it will take to swing a vote on a key issue. 

We know that our city's arts and culture organizations improve and enrich the lives of every Milwaukeean and if we speak up together, we can to ensure that these organizations and our city's artists can continue to create a vibrant, prosperous Milwaukee. 

Please take a moment to learn about and take action on the important issues affecting the arts in Milwaukee, the state, and nation.
