share a cup of coffee with your legislator
Let them know that you’d love to have a conversation about the importance of the arts and why more meaningful, reliable, and equitable investment by the state is a win for our economy, our cities and towns, and the quality of live for our residents. The legislative session starts in February so schedule a meeting now while legislators have the time to listen.
