The Cultural Advocacy Coalition serves as your political voice in Salem on behalf of Oregon’s arts, heritage and humanities. Benefiting every Oregonian, culture cannot thrive without public investment partnerships. The Cultural Advocacy Coalition works to increase Oregon’s public investments in the almost countless cultural activities and assets seen in every community throughout our state. Part of advocating for a public investment partnership is educating policymakers about the rich resources found in their own backyard.
