DCT Friends, we need your help! Right now, the arts is one of the vital sectors of our country in need of a lifeline. Simply put, we need a hero.
In normal times, arts and culture accounts for 5.1 million jobs and 4.5% of the U.S. economy. If you’ve been touched by a play at Dallas Children’s Theater (DCT) or your child has benefited from one of our classes; or if you’re a teacher that loves a field trip to DCT or the parent of a child who’s experienced sensory-friendly classes and shows at DCT, please consider raising your voice in support of the future wellbeing and vibrancy of the creative economy.
The DAWN Act is a bill that would provide grants to organizations like DCT and the actors we employ to help address the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on our livelihoods and the in-person work we do. Reaching out to one of the Senators below would be a great way to cast a vote in support of arts organizations and the actors who make this work possible.
We know that many areas of our economy are suffering right now, and we just don’t want to be left out. That’s why we are reaching out to our most invested stakeholders with a request that you consider joining this nationwide effort in support of the arts. Simply think about the impact the arts have had on your family’s life, what life would be like if we were not there and communicate that to:
|The Honorable Ted Cruz||The Honorable John Cornyn|
|US Senate||US Senate|
|Washington, DC||Washington, DC|
Robyn, Artie, Nancy, Sandra
P.S. We miss you all, and we look forward to seeing you at the theater again soon. In the meantime, thanks so much for your support and for being an arts hero!
