Today is Arts Advocacy Day 2018!
March 13, 2018 by Americans for the Arts
Today, over 600 dedicated arts supporters from across the United States have come together in Washington, D.C. for the 31st annual Arts Advocacy Day: The National Arts Action Summit — the only national event that brings together a broad cross section of America's cultural and civic organizations. These arts advocates represent a united effort to tell Capitol Hill how important the arts are to our communities, how much arts education means to our children, and how the arts improve our daily lives. Over 85 National Partner organizations have helped us shape this united arts message to Congress.  This full page add also appeared in Politico, The Hill, and Roll Call today-- the newspapers read every day by your members of Congress and their staff.  

This Arts Advocacy Day is particularly important with recent news that the Trump Administration has yet again proposed to eliminate funding for the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) and other federal cultural agencies in the FY 2019 budget.  The Administration proposed this elimination last year, but Congress soundly rejected this recommendation.  Your advocacy made all the difference.  You don't need to be in Washington, D.C. today to take action!  

Please take a few minutes to: Thank you for your dedicated support!  Together, we can #SavetheNEA.
