On June 19, 2019, 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 during which Senator Jon Tester (D-MT) was presented the NAfME 2019 Music Education Champion Award. Sen. Tester discussed the importance of music education and the need for all students to receive an equitable music education program in their own schools. Along with Congresswoman Nydia Velazquez in the U.S. House (H.R. 1676), Sen. Tester reintroduced the Guarantee Access to Arts and Music Education (GAAME) Act (S. 885).
