From the Alliance of New York State Arts Organizations:
We MUST get our legislators to speak out in support of arts funding and against the 40% cut in CONFERENCE COMMITTEE TODAY!!!!!!!
Get in touch with your democratic legislators directly or their chief of staff, in both the Assembly and Senate.
YOU NEED TO DO IT NOW.
We must get a critical mass speaking out in conference committees TODAY. The Speaker and Majority Leader will respond to that pressure.
If we do not get a significant number of members speaking out, we will fall through the cracks. The smallest state agency is facing the biggest cut.
Call your electeds NOW. Speak with them directly or their chief of staff….do not leave a message with the receptionist.
