Please send an email or call your district legislators TODAY and ask them to support budget resolutions offered in the NJ Senate and NJ Assembly that request arts, tourism, and history appropriations be restored to FY05 levels ($22.68 million for arts, $12.76 million for tourism, $3.84 million for history, and $720k for NJ Cultural Trust). Budget resolutions were submitted on June 4 for the FY19 state budget which must be approved by June 30. Senator Troy Singleton (D-NJ 7) and Assemblywoman Pat Egan Jones (D-NJ 5) have submitted these resolutions.
If you choose to make a phone call, the pre-worded email will provide you with a phone script. The “ask” is to request your legislators to support this budget resolution as “one of their top three funding priorities.”
Your action is needed NOW. Our goals is to recruit 25 NJ Senators and 50 NJ Assemblypersons to commit their support.
If you have questions about this campaign, please contact Ann Marie Miller at the ArtPride office at 609-479-3377 ext. 307 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you in advance for your support!
