Talk to your legislators. Now.

The good people of Florida’s state legislature (well, I assume they’re good but I am often persuaded otherwise) are trying to gut the state arts budget yet again. Here’s how to fight it:

One response to “Talk to your legislators. Now.

  1. We’ve moved down to 49th lowest state in per capita funding for the arts. We were at 14 cents per citizen. I think the current proposal of less than 1/2 million for the entire state is about FOUR CENTS per citizen. Do we really want to spend less on arts and culture than Mississippi and Alabama?
