Today, a bill that would deliver a devastating blow to arts in schools was approved by the U.S. House of Representatives' Committee on Education and the Workforce.

 

The Committee voted 23-16 to approve H.R. 1891, legislation sponsored by Representative Duncan Hunter (R-CA) that would eliminate all funding for the federal Arts in Education Program. The bill will now proceed to the full House of Representatives for consideration. 

 

Click here (https://writerep.house.gov/writerep/welcome.shtml) and let your Representative know you oppose H.R. 1891 and its shortsighted cuts to valuable arts education programs.

 

Just a minute of your time is all it takes to help protect funding for the arts in America's public schools. With your voice we have a chance.
