The Wisconsin Advocates for Music Education is made up of educators, parents, business people and others who believe that all children deserve a balanced education that includes the study of music and the other arts. WAME's goal is to educate communities about the inherent benefits of music education. It was created as a way for music educators, performing artists, composers, parents, music merchants and manufacturers, working together, to help decision-makers understand that "Music Makes The Difference."
WAME's FREE "Day of Action" Training Session
Our first day of training was a success with 23 eager music educators, music students, music merchants, and community members in attendance!
More training dates to come in a variety of locations throughout the state, keep checking in!
This special training session is FREE for anyone interested in learning how to advocate most effectively with local and state legislators. The training session will share and define an "ask" for an upcoming Day of Action, which calls for proactive, face-to-face meetings with as many state senators and representatives as can be scheduled. Many of these meetings will take place at the State Capitol and in legislators' home districts. The training will cover how to set up face-to-face meetings with state senators or assembly representatives and review strategies for effective communication with lawmakers. It is WAME's goal to have music educators, parents and community members representing all 33 state senate districts in attendance.
