Post: $1B for Arts in Schools

VOTE YES ON PROP 28 IN CALIFORNIA: $1B for Arts in Schools
The Creative Coalition strongly supports passage of Prop 28

With less than one week to Election Day, we need your help to promote the #RightToBearArts. In California, Proposition 28 will dedicate state funding for arts and music education in all K-12 public schools (including charter schools). If this initiative passes next Tuesday, it will dedicate nearly $1 billion for arts education in public schools starting next year. This ballot initiative protects existing education funding and does not raise taxes. It has the strong support of parents, teachers and students. The Creative Coalition strongly endorses Prop 28 and calls on all of its members and supporters to use their platform to promote passage of this important ballot measure in California.
