The Cultural Advocacy Coalition is the only statewide advocacy organization lobbying Salem on behalf of art, culture, heritage and the humanities. We operate solely through the support of individuals and organizations who understand the importance of maintaining an advocacy presence in Salem.

This past session, we faced one of our biggest challenges yet: renewal of the tax credit that fuels gifts to the Cultural Trust. We were successful in our efforts to renew the tax credit and look forward to making even greater strides on behalf of arts and culture in Oregon in the future. I hope you will join us.

Take a look around our website for more information. You will find our legislative reports from past sessions, updated cultural news from across Oregon and a list of our current members—as well as information on how you can help shape our priorities and work in the upcoming legislative session.

Please consider becoming a member today. As a unified, diverse, statewide coalition we can have incredible impact when we work together. Without your voice our coalition’s story is incomplete. I hope you will join us.
