The economic importance of the state’s historical and cultural organizations will be one of the themes for the upcoming annual #CTPlaces Coalition Advocacy Day on Wednesday, March 28th. In 2017, Connecticut’s historical and cultural organizations had more than a $830 million impact on the state’s economy per a recent study commissioned by the Alliance of American Museums.
Advocacy Day, open to the public, will take place at the Legislative Office Building in Hartford from 11 AM to 1 PM on March 28th. The event will include workshops and legislative briefings highlighting the best of the state’s cultural opportunities.
“It is so important that lawmakers understand what we do and how we positively affect our state’s financial health,” said Dr. Jason R. Mancini, Executive Director of Connecticut Humanities. “This event in Hartford comes on the heels of Humanities on the Hill (a national humanities Advocacy Day in Washington, D.C.), where we met with the entire Connecticut Congressional delegation to discuss policy issues affecting museums and cultural nonprofits. We look forward to equal success in Hartford and a strengthening of support by those who value what we do.”
