Advocacy Toolkit

The Latino Arts Network of California (LAN) was born out of a chain of cultural centers that linked the state. LAN is dedicated to strengthening and deepening the cooperative relationship among California’s Latino artists, arts organizations and the communities we serve.

Latino Arts Network Advocacy Toolkit

Advocacy in general is what your organization does to promote and present itself to the public, supporting a case for continued operation and the role of your group in the vitality of your community. Advocacy here is specifically about communicating with your elected officials and decision makers, and promoting not only your organization but also the well-being and support of Latino Arts and Culture in the State of California.

To many, even those who are supportive, the arts are not as vital as other needs and are often overlooked as a priority for funding. Nothing could be further from the truth! We have proven the arts are a good investment.

The LAN CVI Advocacy Toolkit was supported in part by the California Arts Council.
Additional support provided by Members of the Latino Arts Network of California.
