Founded in 1996 as a nonprofit statewide advocacy organization by leaders in the arts field, the California Arts Advocates
(CAA) has been the collaborative force behind the battle to protect arts funding in California, as well as the successful
passage of several bills that return arts programs to schools and laws that positively impact the arts. CAA provides
advocacy services for California’s arts community. CAA provides professional advocacy for all arts stakeholders in
California, from the smallest troupe to the largest institution, from the solo artist to the largest organization, from the most
diverse to the most mainstream, regardless of cultural segment or economic standing. Lobbying efforts have had
significant influence on the legislative process in areas of state funding for the arts, energy, censorship, charity integrity
and fundraising and education.CAA is supported and funded by its members.
