Act Now! Contact Your Legislators to Keep Arts in the Budget
The NEA faces a challenging course in securing its budget this year–ACTA urges you to take a few minutes and contact your Members of Congress and Senators to support the NEA in the budget and to tell them that the arts means jobs!

The House of Representatives has now taken up the FY 2012 Interior Appropriations Bill that contains a $20 million cut in funding to the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA). There are at least two amendments being considered that would decrease the NEA budget further. If these reductions are enacted, they would represent the deepest cut to the NEA in 16 years. Send a message to your member of Congress to register your concerns about this cut today!
