Oppose Trump Plan to Destroy Federal Arts Funding. Protect the NEA!

Demand that U.S. Congress reject any budget that eliminates funding for the arts

Donald Trump’s administration is promoting a budget blueprint that completely eliminates the National Endowment for the Arts and the National Endowment for the Humanities. We must fight back! Founded in 1965 with bipartisan support, the Endowments support cultural institutions including museums, libraries, universities, and public television. Their funding supports literature, scholarly research, visual arts, dance, theater, museums, and arts education programs around the country, ensuring that all Americans can access arts and culture. The Trump budget―if enacted―would erase federal funding for the arts and humanities, depriving artists and scholars of crucial support for the work that fuels America’s innovation and creativity, and hindering efforts to allow all Americans to enjoy and participate in our vibrant national culture. Stand with artists, writers, researchers, scholars, educators and everyday individuals in opposing Donald Trump’s budget that undermines U.S. leadership and innovation in arts, culture, and the humanities. http://pen.org/oppose-trump-plan-destroy-federal-arts-funding/
