ELIZABETH, NJ - A  free workshop on cultural advocacy will take place September 25, from 7 -  8:30 p.m.,  at the Liberty Hall Wagon Shed Building. Designed for arts, cultural and history organizations, the workshop will impart how advocacy can support an organization, the community and cultural life in general.

Adam Perle, the President and CEO of ArtPride New Jersey Foundation, will host the session. Perle will covers a variety of topics, including what advocacy is and how it differs from lobbying; the value of relationship-building and storytelling; getting to know your elected officials; and differences between federal and state issues.

ArtPride New Jersey is a statewide arts service organization representing the interests, accomplishments and needs of more than 600 non-profit arts and cultural organizations whose work is estimated to supply more than $1.5 billion annually in economic activity. ArtPride advances, promotes and advocates for the arts as essential to the quality of life of every citizen and to the economic vitality of our state.
