Policy & Advocacy Coalition
POLICY & ADVOCACY COALITION
The National Museum of African American Music (NMAAM) created the Policy & Advocacy Coalition to provide a unified voice designed to address challenges affecting the historical, preservation and future legacy of African American music, artists, industry professionals, cultural and trade organizations.
The work of this coalition includes a main goal of becoming a catalyst for conversation that creates change, as well as a hub of information and research on African American music, trends, history and related data. Secondarily, the coalition will share information and research on a consistent basis to become a leading source providing intra-industry referrals, media statements and reports to assist all coalition members. Members have access to produced information and reports, serve as contributors and speakers and are acknowledged in all literature created and distributed by (and to) the coalition members.
