Help US Advocate for the National Endowment for the Arts

Tell Legislators that the Arts Mean Jobs & a Strong Economy!
The other NEA (National Endowment for the Arts) funds grants to dance, design, folk & traditional arts, literature, local arts agencies, media arts, multidisciplinary, museums, music, musical theater, opera, presenting, theater, and visual arts.  MANY OF THESE ARTISTS WORK IN OUR SCHOOLS.  Please take a few minutes to write to your Members of Congress to urge them to support the National Endowment for the Arts in widening citizen access to the cultural, educational, and economic benefits of the arts, and advancing creativity and innovation in communities across the United States.  If you've ever used CAP WIZ in writing your legislator through the Association, you know how easy it is.  The ARTS ACTION FUND of AMERICAN FOR THE ARTS (Let me encourage you to join), uses this as well and will allow you to paste pieces of pre-written messages AND add your own original words.

To learn more about the programs of the National Endowment for the Arts and to see the Americans for the Arts Position/Policy paper on the National Endowment for the Arts, click here.  Please download, save and share this piece.  Please take five or ten minutes to do this.
