Be part of the movement to guarantee healthy arts funding and arts education in America. Join the Arts Action Fund
On Tuesday, September 4th the Democratic National Platform was released. The platform includes the following statement in support of the arts:
"Arts and Culture. Democrats are proud of our support for arts funding and education. We are committed to continuing the policies and programs that have already done so much for our creative arts industry and economy. Investment in the arts strengthens our communities and contributes to our nation’s rich cultural heritage. We will continue to support public funding for the National Endowment for the Arts, for the National Endowment for the Humanities, and for programs providing art and music education in primary and secondary schools. The entire nation prospers when we protect and promote the unique and original artistic and cultural contributions of the women and men who create and preserve our nation’s heritage."
It is worth noting that Tuesday, September 4th is the same day that the Arts Action Fund held its ArtsSpeak and ArtsJam events at the DNC that focused on the importance of investing in the arts and arts education in the United States.
