#ArtsVote Goes Digital

April 06, 2017 at 9:00am - 9pm


Join an all-day campaign to reach out to your located elected officials through social media to thank them for their continued public investment in arts and culture, to encourage them to increase the resources to neighborhood arts centers, and to remind them of the value of arts education in workforce development and of the need for a robust cultural infrastructure for the continued health and prosperity of Greater Los Angeles. The goal is to have every elected official - whether city council member or school board member - hear from #ArtsVote advocates in all 81 school districts and 88 cities in Los Angeles County. 

TWEET OUT Guidelines

  • Include #ArtsVote hashtag every time so we can make our voices heard!

  • Personalize tweets to your elected officials - see partial list below. To add your elected official's name and Twitter handle to this list so that others may use it, please email us at [email protected]

  • If your elected official doesn't have a Twitter handle, send your Tweet to the city's or school board's official Twitter handle and create a hashtag for your official.  Example: @LBSchools (Long Beach Unified School District's official Twitter handle) #SchoolBoardMember

  • Personalize tweets to your city or school district, by Twitter handle or #hashtag.  Examples: @BurbankCA #CulverCity, #InglewoodUSD, @cityoflancastser, and so on.
