TAKE ACTION TO GET AB 700 TO THE NEXT STEP!
The Creative Industries Revitalization Act
AB 700 passed the Assembly Revenue & Taxation Committee on Monday, April 27. Your emails of support made the difference.
In May, AB 700 will go before the Assembly Appropriations Committee. It has to pass this committee to survive!
~WE CAN’T STOP NOW!
It is essential to increase the number of organizations who submit letters of support for a public investment in the arts and the communities they serve. We must build a huge ground swell to move AB 700 forward.
~YOU CAN DO THIS!
Executive Directors, board members and arts patrons that own businesses impacted by the arts need to fax a support letter this week to Assistant Majority Leader Paul Krekorian at (916) 319-2143 so we can build an unprecedented list of supporters. Click here for the list of current supporters.
