Tuesday, March 21 is National Arts Advocacy Day. How will you advocate?
About National Arts Advocacy Day:
On March 21st, Americans for the Arts will bring together 85 national arts organizations & over 500 grassroots arts advocates to visit their Congressmembers in D.C. to develop strong public policies investing in the creative cultural life of our cities, focusing on saving support for the National Endowment for the Arts this year.
It may be too late for you to get to D.C. by Tuesday, but there are many ways you can take action right here in the San Francisco Bay Area.
The Arts Education Alliance of the Bay Area is endorsing two propositions in the November 8, 2016 election in San Francisco.

The Theatre and Dance Act (SB916) has been moving its way through the California political system. The state Assembly approved it 78-0, so it now heads to Governor Jerry Brown; once he signs it, it's law. Read more about the bill here. Brown has been somewhat unpredictable as to what he'll sign. There is a chance he could find some reason to veto this bill.
