Betty Supports the Arts and the Arts Action Fund Supports Betty!

Posted on: Apr 3, 2018

I wanted to share with you that I was in Saint Paul this past Monday, March 26th, to personally present an Arts Action Fund Political Action Committee (PAC) check for $2,500 to your congressional representative,Congresswoman Betty McCollum (middle). The event was a re-election fundraiser co-hosted personally by Sheila Smith, Executive Director of Minnesota Citizens for the Arts and a founding Arts Action Fund member (left). The Arts Action Fund currently has an impressive 3,800 members in Betty’s 4th Congressional district in Minnesota.

Betty is the Ranking Democrat on the House Interior Appropriations Subcommittee, which recently allocated funding increases in the Omnibus bill to the National Endowment for the Arts, National Endowment for the Humanities, Smithsonian museums, and to the nation’s federal monuments and national parks. She is a longtime member of the Congressional Arts Caucus and the 2007 recipient of the Americans for the Arts and U.S. Conference of Mayors joint Congressional Arts Leadership Award.

Please consider a contribution to the Arts Action Fund to support our grassroots advocacy efforts. We'll also renew your membership for another year so that you can participate in our members-only PAC. 

Thank you and please vote for Betty on November 6, 2018!
