ACDA Advocacy Statement

Whereas the human spirit is elevated to a broader understanding of itself through study and performance in the aesthetic arts; and
Whereas serious cutbacks in funding and support have steadily eroded state institutions and their programs throughout the country;
Be it resolved that all citizens of the United States of America actively voice affirmative and collective support for necessary 
funding at the local, state, and national levels of education and government to ensure the survival of arts programs for this and future generations.
