Protect Federal Arts, Humanities, and Environmental Programs

The Issue

President Trump’s transition team is conspiring to privatize the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, eliminate the National Endowment for the Arts, the National Endowment for the Humanities, as well as severely roll back funding for the Violence Against Women Act and the Department of Energy. Also, President Trump’s pick to head up the Office of Management and Budget (it is what it sounds like it is) Mick Mulvaney, will gleefully enact these plans. Yup, it’s a lot to take in.

Why You Should Care

If you care even a little bit about art, the environment, public media, and the safety of women then you should definitely give a shit about this. Also, these programs make up less than .003% of the federal budget so this is pretty much all political grandstanding fuckery. If this was really about the budget, they would cut something that would actually impact the budget.

What You Can Do About It

The Senate has to vote to confirm Mick Mulvaney as the head of the Office of Management and Budget. Mr. Mulvaney will have a significant amount of power to decide which of these programs the new administration will try to kill first. Contact your people and let them know you’re having NONE of this. Vote no on Mulvaney!

Hello,

I am a [place you are registered to vote in] resident, voter, and taxpayer. As your constituent, I should get a say in how my tax dollars get spent. I do not support President Trump’s plans to privatize the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, eliminate funding for the National Endowment for the Arts and the National Endowment for the Humanities, roll back funding for the Violence Against Women Act, or defunding the Department of Energy. I also do not support President Trump’s pick to head up the Office of Management and Budget, Mick Mulvaney, who does not want to keep these programs.

I am well aware that these programs make up less than .003% of the federal budget. This isn’t about trimming the national debt. Please vote to protect these programs and do not confirm appointees who want to cut them.
