Senate Cuts Arts From Economic Stimulus Bill

February 06, 2009—Your action is needed immediately, as $50 million in federal funds for the arts hangs in the balance. The American Recovery & Reinvestment Act of 2009 is being considered by Congress today, and a growing number of media reports have portrayed the arts funding included in the House version of the bill negatively. Americans for the Arts is calling on all of our members and arts advocates from around the U.S. to take two minutes to send a short letter to the editor to your local media outlet. We've provided the talking points and we just ask you to customize it to your community.
