Missouri Citizens for the Arts

Central Region Adopt-A-Legislator

Thank you for partnering with Missouri Citizens for the Arts (MCA) to be an arts advocate. Please "adopt-a-legislator" by signing up to be in touch with a state representative or senator. We are so happy to have you as a partner in our work to secure public funding for the arts!

MCA will provide you with helpful tools about how to set up a call -- we're all virtual this year -- what to say when you visit and important follow-ups afterwards, so watch your in-box. If you want to get a head start, have a look at MCA's legislative agenda here: https://mo4arts.org/advocacy/mcas-agenda/

A very helpful tool in communicating the impact of the Missouri Arts Council (MAC) is the attachment included below, in the "related file" section. It includes all MAC grants statewide and is sorted by each legislator. Please use it to share the specific MAC grants in your adopted legislator's district. It is especially compelling for elected officials to see that MAC grants are helping arts organizations in the communities they represent.   

*If the legislator you hoped to contact is already "adopted," be brave and take another from your area! But if you feel your connection to a certain legislator is particularly strong and they are already taken, contact MCA's legislative consultant, Kyna Iman, at [email protected]. Also, you can still be in touch wth legislators who are adopted by others. We hope that legislators will hear from lots of arts advocates and that they'll be contacted year round about the impact of the arts, not just in February.

Help spread the word about this effort! Please get your friends and colleagues involved! We need this sign-up to fill completely so that all legislators hear from at least one arts advocate this February.
