Thursday, April 6

Issue: Protest immediate (current fiscal year) budget cuts to Education, Arts, and Human Services (NEA, NEH, NIH).

Sources:
Americans for the Arts Action Fund
USNews

Action: Call your national Senators and Representatives.

Script: Do not approve Trump’s proposals to cut current year spending in the budget that supports education, the arts, research, and social programs.

Details: Earlier this month the White House had proposed eliminating all funding to the National Endowments for the Arts (NEA) and the Humanities (NEH) for next year’s FY 2018 budget. Last week, the White proposed that Congress cut $18 billion immediately from a targeted list of federal domestic programs out of the current year’s FY 2017 budget, with only six months left in the fiscal year. The stated purpose of the new cuts is to offset higher proposed defense and border security spending. This would cut current approved funding for the arts, Pell grants, research, and social programs.
