National Arts Funding

On February 10, the Trump Administration proposed--for the fourth year in a row--to eliminate the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) and the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH). 

We can’t just sit on our laurels here in Massachusetts and hope that Congress will do what it’s done before and reject the proposal. We have to join arts advocates across the nation and make sure our federal representatives hear from us.

Sign our petition to call on our Massachusetts Congressional delegation to once again save the NEA and the NEH. 

Shutting down these arts and humanities agencies isn’t about balancing the budget or cutting excess spending. These cuts are in direct opposition to our values and all that arts, culture, and the humanities bring to building healthy, vibrant, and equitable communities across the country.
