trump's proposed budget cuts funding for NATIONAL ENDOWMENT FOR THE ARTS

 

Today is Thursday, March 16, 2017

For 50 years, the National Endowment for the Arts has supported arts organizations across the United States. Today, the Trump Administration, staying true to their scumbag persona, proposed a budget that would eliminate all funding to the NEA.

That means funding for MUSEUMS, MUSIC, ARTS EDUCATION, LITERATURE, MUSICAL THEATRE, THEATRE, DANCE, OPERA, VISUAL ARTS, DESIGN, MEDIA ARTS, ARTIST COMMUNITIES, ART RESEARCH, ART ANALYSIS, ART ACCESSIBILITY, LOCAL ARTS PROGRAMS, and MORE … will vanish in October.

So What Can We Do?

Here’s a link to Dramatist’s Guild President Doug Wright’s insight into how we can all take action.

THE GIST:

1)      Call local lawmakers and lodge protests.

2)      Engage the press.

3)      Use your platforms to address frustration with the government’s shortsightedness.

4)      Volunteer to assist in arts education in public schools.
