Arts programs saved my life. They invited me in when my bipolar mania was bad, and helped me express myself. Art is fun, expressive, and has a history so intertwined with Philly it just won't be Philly without it.

The Arts are vital to civic life! If you think they're superfluous, just wait and see the result of eliminating their presence.

The PA Council on the Arts provides crucial support to all arts organizations, especially during a time when no earned income can be made. The arts have always been a safe space for community, education and advocacy. Supporting the arts supports the economy and the health of the community

I understand he there's budget shortfalls. Capitulate and private wealth and inequsl tax laws and distribution mean you're Sorry if where you've been in the past and budgets need to be cut. There's are much bigger pools whet the same cut has fewer implications on individuals communities and societal advancement. Like policing and incarceration. Rethink those. Keep the arts.

Thanks for adding your voice.
