Why Advocacy is Important

Our state representatives believe for in museums, and how important they are.
Museums are an important part of every community. They provide cultural and educational services to students and families across our great Commonwealth. They preserve our history, art, music, and literature for future generations to enjoy. Museums are an important factor in the local economy; generating tourism revenue and creating jobs for Virginians.” Former Delegate Christopher K. Peace.
It is our job, as the stewards of those museums, to provide the data and stories our representatives need in order to fight for our needs--the more they hear from us, the more they can support us.
"If our constituents say that "this is something we care about" then it is our job to make that happen." Delegate Jeff Bourne, 71st House District.
