Call your Reps to support the NEA!

Sisters and Brothers —

The Appropriations Committee of the US House just passed full funding for the National Endowment for the Arts in its budget.

This is huge news, because the President's budget proposal called on Congress to eliminate this funding entirely. It took a lot of work from people who care about the arts to keep this essential funding in the budget.

IATSE activism and calls helped to achieve this major milestone in the federal budget process. We need to keep the pressure on.

Next, the appropriations bill will move on to the full House for a vote, and the battle will start again. It's important to make sure that all of our Representatives know how important this is.

Keep those phone calls coming! Call your Representatives and encourage them to vote for a budget that provides full funding for the National Endowment for the Arts.

To run an NEA campaign in your local, please connect with your Local leadership and contact the IATSE Political & Legislative Department.

In Solidarity,
