In reference to the budget cut proposals, Robert Lynch, President and CEO of Americans for the Arts stated: “Our nation’s parents, teachers, community leaders, arts advocates, government officials, and even economists will not accept this proposal.”

The Directors Guild, Screen Actors Guild, and Writers Guilds of America issued a joint statement regarding the budget cut proposals: “Cutting federal support of these programs will not only hurt artists and those who benefit from their work, it will also send a damaging message to future generations about the power of art and its place in our culture.”

Additional information regarding the budget proposal’s impact on the NEA available at:

We must continue with our efforts to Resist the Trump Agenda!
We must continue telling Walden he is failing his constituents in Oregon District 2!
