H15 save the arts rally

And in New York City, hundreds of artists, librarians, broadcasters and museum workers gathered at City Hall Monday for a rally aimed at stopping federal cuts to the arts and humanities. President Trump’s proposed budget would eliminate funding to the National Endowments for the Arts and Humanities, the Institute of Museum and Library Services and the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. This is New York City Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito.

Melissa Mark-Viverito: “People who are and appreciate culture and the arts are people that have a greater understanding of the world. That is a threat to this administration.”
