The Iowa Alliance for Arts Education is sponsoring the sixth annual Arts Advocacy Day at the State Capitol in Des Moines on Wednesday, January 22, 2020. They are currently recruiting advocates to attend this event.
Advocates will have the opportunity to speak directly to legislators on the importance of arts education in our state and advance the arts education legislative agenda.
Advocacy Day will begin with a training session at 8:00 a.m., followed by the opening of Iowa House/Senate where the current Miss Iowa Emily Tinsman (former IAAE advocate) will sing the national anthem. The rest of the morning will be spent with visits to your assigned legislators. IAAE will provide lunch at noon with entertainment. In the afternoon, there will be IAAE presentations to the House and Senate Education Committees featuring the Johnson STEAM Academy from Cedar Rapids, participants in the IAAE mentoring program and Emily Tinsman.
