SupportMusic Community Forum-It’s A Wrap

The NAMM Foundation finished its back to school year advocacy kick off with five SupportMusic Community Forums across the U.S.


The SupportMusic Coalition’s advocacy materials were developed to strengthen local advocacy efforts. You can use them at hometown events, at your school board meeting and when you visit elected officials. They are especially effective in reaching out to parents who may not fully grasp how important music education is for their children.

Join the effort of music education advocates working together to support a quality education for all children that includes music and the arts.
