Stop Trump’s Attack on the Arts and Humanities

1,742 signatures

Dear Massachusetts Congressional Delegation,

For 50 years, funding for National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) and National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) have supported small, medium, and large cultural institutions in Massachusetts to help develop and showcase new and innovative art forms and to bring vibrancy and creativity to our neighborhoods.

The NEA and the NEH represent the best of our democratic values - ensuring everyone, regardless of means, has access to the transformative power of the arts and culture.

As supporters of the arts, culture, and the humanities, we urge you to ensure this work continues by supporting no less than $150 million for both the National Endowment for the Arts and National Endowment for the Humanities in the FY18 budget, and $155 million in FY19.

Sincerely,


Third Friday Advocacy Day - January 18th 2013

157 pledges

Yes, our organization will participate in MASSCreative's Third Friday Advocacy Day on January 18th 2013. 

We will ask our colleagues and supporters to sign a petition to Governor Patrick and request he increase the Commonwealth’s investment in the arts and cultural community by increasing the Massachusetts Cultural Council’s FY2014 budget by $3 million to a total of $12.5 million. 

We pledge to engage our organization in one or more of the following ways: 

  • Encouraging our staff and board to sign the petition
  • Sending out a request to our email lists of supporters, Facebook friends and Twitter followers linking them to the petition and encouraging them to sign
  • Engaging our live audiences on Friday the 18th by signing the petition on their smart phones or on a hard copy at your event venue
