                    Dear Members, Colleagues and Friends,


                                       


You need to take action now to support Senator Inouye's FY 2011 "Long-term"
   Continuing Resolution proposal that restores NEA funding for FY 2001 to
   $167.5 million and $25 million to the Arts in Education program.  This
  bill, created in the Senate Appropriations Committee last Friday, counters
   the House passed bill (H.R. 1) that reduces the NEA to $124 million and
             completely eliminates the Arts in Education program.


                                       


                    Take Action Now in the following ways:


                                       



  * Americans for the Arts Action Fund has an effective portal where you can
  contact your Senator and send them an email expressing your concern about
the NEA and NEH 2011 funding.  You can go directly there by clicking here:
                     Americans for the Arts Action Fund.


   * Call your Senator at their district offices.  It is very effective to
speak to a staff member who tracks calls from constituents. Explain that you
    support these agencies and do not wish to see any cuts to them.  Tell
  stories about how these agencies support the work you do in your community
                   by providing jobs and public programs. 


* Call your Senator at their Washington office and ask to speak to the staff
  member who handles these issues for the official. Explain that you support
   these agencies and do not wish to see any cuts.  Tell stories about how
  these agencies support the work you do in your community by providing jobs
                            and public programs. 

                                       


Take a moment now to let your Senator know what you think about the proposed
cuts.  Please forward this message around to your constituents and ask them
                         to take action to join you.


                                       


                                  Thank you,


                                       


                                  Jack Walsh


                              Executive Director
