2. Here at Wide Angle we embrace inclusivity, and we are paying close attention to how changes to healthcare may affect young people, as well as adults and youth with disabilities. For more information, here is a toolkit of webinar information compiled by multiple disability rights organizations. You can also follow our community partner, Disability Rights Maryland.
1. Governor Hogan’s latest budget proposal cuts millions of dollars in education supports to Baltimore. You can contact the Governor and Comptroller to share your voice on why you think these funds are vital for quality educational programming for young people.
2. Recent news indicates that our federal administration may propose to eliminate the National Endowment for the Arts, the National Endowment for the Humanities, and absorb the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. Each one of those budget actions would have devastating effects to the cultural community. To express your support of the arts & humanities, there are multiple online petitions that you can sign, as well as a mailing list you can join here.
