Issues & Advocacy

Get Involved

There are four important ways to support the restaurant industry’s advocacy efforts.

America's Restaurant Advocates

America’s Restaurant Advocates is an industry-wide, national grassroots program that connects restaurateurs with elected officials on issues critical to the industry and your bottom-line.  

Learn more about this important program.

The Restaurant PAC (for those who can be solicited)

The National Restaurant Association's Political Action Committee is the industry’s leading trade association PAC. The Restaurant PAC pools personal, voluntary funds from thousands of restaurateurs to help support and elect pro-restaurant, pro-business and pro-free enterprise candidates to federal office.
