ACT AT THE STATE AND FEDERAL LEVELS
- Sign Californians for the Arts Open Letter:
As California's Legislature and the Newsom Administration and Congress and the Trump Administration consider new forms of federal and state economic assistance that may be targeted or widespread, artists and performing arts groups can join with others in the arts and nonprofit sectors to speak up to ensure that relief will meet all community needs.
As the federal government drafts an economic relief package to provide emergency relief to American workers and businesses, it is critical that arts and cultural institutions—along with their employees—are supported in this package. In a package of nearly $2 trillion, we are urging Congress to include $4 billion in relief for nonprofit museums and cultural institutions and their workers. We are also urging Congress to adopt a temporary "universal charitable deduction" that will help incentivize more charitable giving at a time when we project a steep decline.
- Contact your Congressmember and urge them to support $4 billion in economic relief for arts and culture.
- Thank Congressman Schiff and Congressman Sherman for requesting protections for freelance and contract workers in the entertainment industry.
