In addition to making massive cuts to healthcare funding, the Trump budget — if enacted — would erase federal funding for the arts and humanities, depriving artists and scholars of crucial support for the work that fuels America’s innovation and creativity, and hindering efforts to allow all Americans to enjoy and participate in our vibrant national culture. We must fight back.
Funding for the NEA and NEH each constitute only .003% of federal spending, an investment that supports some of the world’s greatest literature, art, and cultural institutions. Eliminating these vital agencies would lessen America’s stature as a haven for free thinkers and a global leader in humanity’s shared quest for knowledge.
Founded in 1965 with bipartisan support, the Endowments support cultural institutions including museums, libraries, universities, and public television.
Their funding supports literature, scholarly research, visual arts, dance, theater, museums, and arts education programs around the country, ensuring that all Americans can access arts and culture.
Stand with artists, writers, researchers, scholars, educators and everyday individuals in opposing Donald Trump’s budget that undermines US leadership and innovation in arts, culture, and the humanities.
The budget fight is just getting started! As we learn more details, we will expose the corporate giveaways and lies that are attempting to undermine all the progressive change that has happened over the decades.
