We understand that the Legislative Budget Conference Committee will review the California Arts Council budget item this afternoon. So far, we are gratified by the large numbers of artists, arts leaders and arts lovers who have responded to our call to action. But THIS MORNING is CRITICAL!
IF YOU HAVE NOT DONE SO ALREADY, PLEASE PHONE THESE COMMITTEE MEMBERS THIS MORNING.
Their offices will answer, you simply say “I’m calling to support a $10 million budget for the California Arts Council.” They will record your name and city or zip and say thank you. That’s all it takes!
