Podcast #46: What’s New with the GIA’s Policy and Advocacy Efforts?

Grantmakers in the Arts holds public policy and advocacy as one of its core funding focus areas. As part of this work, we find one of the most important roles we can serve in benefitting our members and the arts grantmaking field comes by way of our public policy and advocacy work. On this podcast, we are glad to be joined by special guest Althea Erickson, director of Sol Center for Liberated Work, Center for Cultural Innovation, and Eddie Torres, president and CEO, Grantmakers in the Arts. They discuss recent lobbying and advocacy efforts of GIA, navigating how shifting priorities can influence GIA approach to advocacy, and opportunities for you to support current legislation.
