ABOUT THE RIGHT TO BEAR ARTS CAMPAIGN

Begun by The Creative Coalition, The Right To Bear Arts™ campaign raises public awareness about and encourages civic activism in favor of maintaining federal funding for the creative arts, including through the National Endowment for the Arts. Too often, stripping arts funding from the federal budget is proposed as a quick and easy way to reduce government spending, but this is bad public policy. Funding for the arts represents a miniscule yet worthwhile percentage of the Federal budget. Americans of all political views are united by their love for the arts, whether in their cinemas, on their televisions, or through the music they enjoy. No government that weakens the arts can strengthen America.
