The Illinois State Museum System's closure would be a dramatic loss to science and cultural heritage education at a time when we can ill-afford to reduce our investments in narrowing the innovation deficit. Find out how you can get involved and read AAA's letter to the governor. 


You can help by registering your support for the Illinois State Museum:

• Send an e-mail or call the governor (217) 782-0244

• Send a letter

• Testify at a public hearing on July 13

• Submit a public commit before July 22


If you’re willing to go one step further, a quick e-mail or phone call to the offices of the following officials would have a huge impact:

• The Honorable John J. Cullerton, President, Illinois Senate
   email: phone: (773) 883-0770

• The Honorable Jim Durkin, Republican Leader, Illinois House of Representatives
   email:  phone: (217) 782-0494
