As stated on the American for the Arts website, “Anyone can advocate for the Arts and have impact.” Americans for the Arts provides advocacy tools and resources to help develop strong leadership in the arts. Currently featured on the website home page is an article about the first ever Turnaround Arts White House Talent Show. The event was held as part of a larger administration effort to leverage art, artists, and significant Department of Education resources to turnaround the nation's worst performing schools through Turnaround Arts, a public-private partnership that utilizes the arts to help narrow the achievement gap.
