ATTN: ALL ADVOCATES OF THE ARTS AND HUMANITIES!
As many of you are aware, the Trump administration put forth a budget proposal calling for the elimination of funding for vital government programs like the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA), the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH), and the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB) - all of which ensure access to and education of the arts and humanities.
For more than a century, the College Art Association (CAA) has represented art historians, artists, museum professionals, designers, and others who think and care about the visual arts and its impact on our culture, and is one of many organizations working to keep this federal funding in place. But your voice must be heard and there are steps you can take. To help advocate for the arts and humanities the CAA put together a toolkit with information on how to be heard, where your efforts can have the most impact, and where to find data to support your advocacy.
