Take Action for Florida Arts

The Florida Senate has voted to eliminate all arts funding in Florida - the arts need you to take action now.

Please go to http://www.flca.net/flca/advocacy_checklist.htm. This is a checklist of things you can do to help. Keep checking that website for updates. Please CALL, WRITE, EMAIL or VISIT your legislators this week.

THE MESSAGE TO GET ACROSS IS: SAVE ARTS FUNDING!
The arts are willing to take their fair share of funding cuts. We only request $14.7 million dollars, which is a 50-percent decrease from last year's state funding.

Below you will find links to Senators and Representatives from Sarasota and Manatee counties. Please let them know how much you value the arts in Florida.
