The White House released its proposed budget to Congress this morning, officially recommending full termination of funding of the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) and National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH), The Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB) and the Institute for Museum and Library Services (IMLS)) for Fiscal Year 2018.This is the first American President in history to propose zeroing out all funding for the nation’s federal cultural agencies.
The next time someone says that voting doesn't matter. Or that whoever is in office doesn't make a difference. Remind them of this catastrophe we collectively allowed to happen. With each passing day we are bearing witness to and experiencing the dismantling of essential public institutions like education, the arts, environmental protection and healthcare. Your voice matters. Your vote matters. We must vote-out all of these elected officials in 2018 and 2020. #savetheNEA
