Missouri Citizens for the Arts remains dedicated to amplifying the collective voice of Missouri’s arts industry so that it is both loud and strong. During Missouri Arts Advocacy Week 2023, we will take our message directly to legislators via virtual and in-person meetings at the capitol and in-district.

Annually, MCA undertakes a concerted effort to contact all elected officials during their legislative session. And while we encourage year-round communications with senators and representatives, it is particularly important that all legislators hear from arts advocates living and working in their districts as the state’s budget is formulated. Join us collectively as we take our message directly to legislators on February 8th for Arts Advocacy Day!

RAC is proud to sponsor the bus to Jefferson City.
