It is time to show powerful legislators that we are powerful too!
We've heard of at least three different Town Hall meetings this Saturday -- please attend one of them to tell key legislators to support arts and heritage and preserve funding for 4Culture. Especially with bills still being considered in both the House and the Senate, we need arts/heritage advocates to come out in force! All Town Halls are free and open to the public. Legislators will provide an update on the 2010 Legislative Session and hold a discussion about the major issues facing our district and state this year. Ask them your questions about arts, heritage, culture and how are they going to come to terms and pass the current bills in the House and Senate.
If you live in, or attend events in Districts 11, 37 or 43, these are the town halls for you:
