For 27 years, Nina has served as the chief policy and advocacy strategist for Americans for the Arts and in 2004, she became the founding executive director of the Americans for the Arts Action Fund, an affiliated 501(c)(4) grassroots organization with a connected Political Action Committee—the only dedicated arts PAC in the country.
