Dear Pennsylvania Artist:
We are facing a disaster in state support for the arts. The outlook for state funding for the arts has taken a dramatic and significant turn for the worse. Your immediate efforts are needed. Senate Bill 850, that eliminates all funding for the arts and the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, is back under consideration. But it is worse. The proposed budget in SB 850 would need to be reduced by an additional $1.7 billion to balance the budget. That’s billion, with a “B.” Please join with us in supporting continued state funding for the arts. We need your help. Join us and tell your friends about the upcoming Arts Rally at the Capitol on Tuesday, July 14 at 11 am in the Rotunda of the Main Capitol. Your presence will make a powerful statement of support for the arts. Register now: http://www.citizensfortheartsinpa.org/SavetheArtsinPARally.asp
If you haven’t already, please sign up to receive future action alerts and contact your legislators and the Governor with your message of support. It is quick and easy to do using the Citizens for the Arts website: http://capwiz.com/artsusa/pa
Then contact 5 other people to get them to sign up for advocacy alerts and to send a message to their legislators by using the Citizens for the Arts website. For state funding to continue we need your action now. Watch for future emails about next steps!
