Two bills, A2160 and S1133, have been introduced in the new 2014 legislative session to restore state funding for arts, history, and tourism. We need your help NOW to recruit co-sponsors for both bills to return state funding to 2005 levels of support. ArtPride New Jersey, the Advocates for New Jersey History, and the New Jersey Travel Industry Association are working together to achieve this goal by April 1st, so time is of the essence!
Please take a moment TODAY to email, phone or visit your New Jersey elected officials. You can find Talking Points In our Arts Advocacy Tool Kit to make the case for restoration. Sending an email is easy, and you can edit our message to include a personal story of how arts, history, and tourism impact your community. You can also join a legislative team and make a personal visit, or place a phone call asking for support. No matter what you do, please let ArtPride New Jersey know your efforts so that we can track progress on these important bills. We promise to keep you updated on the impact of our collective action.
Arts, history, and tourism businesses increase our state’s revenue - it’s time we got our fair share!
