Illinois Arts Need Your Support

To all of my Illinois readers:  Pat Quinn, our state Governor has just put out his budget plans. Luckily, he  does not recommend further cuts in state arts funding, but there is many a slip between the cup and the political lip when it comes to proposals and final results.  If you do care, please follow the bouncing ball to the Arts Alliance Illinois and tell your legislators that you do wish to protect what is left of arts funding in Illinois. It’s going to take all of us working together and you have the power to activate others if you move on this now. 


please hit this button.

AND FORWARD THIS ACTION ALERT (http://tinyurl.com/protect-the-arts) to your Illinois friends, supporters, and colleagues

* SHARE THIS ACTION ALERT ONLINE (http://tinyurl.com/protect-the-arts) with your networks on Facebook, Twitter, your blog, etc.  just as I have done.

You can count on opponents of a responsible and comprehensive budget to try to use the arts as a political punching bag. Don’t let these extreme views be the only thing lawmakers hear. For more ways to get involved, contact Scarlett Swerdlow at Arts Alliance Illinois at swerdlow@artsalliance.org or 312.855.3105 x13.
