The National Association of Latino Arts and Cultures is dedicated to advocating on behalf of our communities for policies that benefit artistic and cultural flourishing. From preserving our traditions to creating groundbreaking new works, this involves advocating for those policies and pieces of legislation that ratify the importance of artistic endeavor for ensuing generations.


We invite and encourage you to get involved to advocate with us on these important matters. There are several ways you can take part.



Alumni of the NALAC Leadership Institute are eligible to take part in a program that provides critical training to effectively approach lawmakers and advocate on behalf of Latino arts and cultures. Click here to learn more about the NALAC Leadership and Advocacy Leadership Institutes.



It is in the halls of state houses and Capitol Hill where the policies that directly affect the Latino arts and cultures communities take shape. Get involved and contact your elected representatives to tell them how very important arts and cultures are to the lives of every American.
