Advocacy Alert: Creative Economy Revitalization Act
On August 13, Representatives Teresa Leger Fernández (D-NM) and Jay Obernolte (R-CA) introduced the bi-partisan Creative Economy Revitalization Act (CERA).
CERA calls for $300 million for a new federal grant program to support the arts. Grants will be awarded to local, state, and tribal agencies, workforce investment boards, and public or private nonprofit entities who can hire local creative workers and produce publicly-available creative projects. These projects could include public artworks, festivals, performances, written works, anthologies and narrative collections from first responders and historically marginalized communities, and arts education work.
To advance CERA, we need your support! Please e-mail your legislators and urge them to co-sign the Creative Economy Revitalization Act.
