On March 12-13, MASSCreative’s Program Advocate, Emily Ruddock will lead a set Massachusetts arts supporters to Washington, DC to represent the Commonwealth at Americans for the Arts' 31st Annual Arts Advocacy Day.

Let’s equip Emily with a strong and unified grassroots voice, urging our Massachusetts delegation to once again stand up for all of us who oppose defunding the NEA and the NEH.
