On June 29, 2017, more than 300 music education advocates visited their U.S. senators and representatives to advocate for music education. The day began with a music education rally at the Upper Senate Park, including singing and a special message from Jake Hochberg, staffer for Rep. Nydia Velazquez (NY-7). Afterwards delegations visited congressional offices to tell their stories about music education and make specific public policy asks.
