Action Alert: Speak Up as Congress Designs Next Relief Package!

By Laurie Baskin posted 02-09-2021 09:38


Theatres actively advocated to urge support for the creative sector in the multiple 2020 COVID-19 relief packages. Please keep communicating with your elected officials!

TCG has an active COVID-19 advocacy campaign that includes background, talking points, and access information for your elected officials as we continue to partner with the broader nonprofit and arts sectors to advance support throughout the duration of the coronavirus crisis. As Congress and the White House begin negotiations this week, we are urging Congress to swiftly enact full coverage of self-insured unemployment liability, expanded pandemic unemployment benefits, enhanced charitable giving incentives, public education funding, and additional forms of direct federal relief funding to support the arts and nonprofit sectors.

You can find our overview of arts sector requests here.

TCG has joined a coalition of national arts service organizations that has developed a thoughtful and unified statement of our COVID-19 Requests, urging legislators to fund specific economic relief programs for the arts, ranging from SBA and NEA funding to health care coverage and education.

Thank you for your continued advocacy!
