The New Jersey state budget will be voted on September 25, leaving less than a month for advocates to remind their state legislators that public funding proposed for arts, history, and tourism is critical to these industries. Their vote of support is essential.
Normally, arts organizations generate more than $662 million in economic impact and serve 8.5 million residents and visitor each year. However, arts organizations around New Jersey are currently engaging audiences in a dramatically different “new normal,” which translates into greatly reduced revenue from extremely limited live audiences and virtual offerings.
State funding is needed to keep the nonprofit arts industry moving forward in recovery. Please take this moment to remind your district legislators that their support is essential while budget negotiations continue. Feel free to add a personal story or edit the email below.
