Tell the Senate to Support Increased Federal Arts Funding

  • 12 September 2022

We are on the cusp of winning a significant funding increase for the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) and the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) next year, and your help is needed to make sure Congress gets it done!

In July, the U.S. House of Representatives approved $207 million in funding for the NEA and NEH each for the next fiscal year. Now, we need the U.S. Senate’s support to make sure this funding becomes a reality.

Contact your Senators today to ask that they fund the NEA and NEH at $207 million in FY23, the funding level already passed by the House.

The NEA and NEH support job opportunities for union creative professionals in every state while providing all Americans with access to enriching programs that lift up local economies. Additionally, the NEA and NEH are critical to advancing diversity, equity, and inclusion in the arts, entertainment and media industries.

Taking action today helps get us closer to our ultimate goal of restoring the NEA and NEH to a full funding level of $331 million, or $1 per capita. Tell your Senators to support $207 million for the NEA and NEH!

HAPPY LABOR DAY!

  • 5 September 2022


This Labor Day, we celebrate a historic year for working people and their unions. 

Public approval of unions is at a level not seen since 1965, with 71 percent of Americans expressing support for unions, according to a recent Gallup poll. Majorities in every age bracket -- from Gen Z to Baby Boomers -- say they'd join a union. 

As a movement, we are faced with unprecedented challenges and opportunities. 

Union elections are taking place at a record pace, but a worker-friendly National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) remains strategically underfunded by anti-union activists in Congress. 

Workers at major corporations like Starbucks and Amazon are fighting back against their employers' illegal union-busting tactics -- and winning recognition of their unions.

Ostensibly progressive nonprofits, too, have mirrored the corporate union-busting playbook, but nonprofit workers are winning historic union campaigns at major organizations like the Guttmacher Institute and the Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights. These, and many others, are now proud to call themselves OPEIU members!

We look forward to building upon the momentum we've built together inside our union and as part of the broader global movement for economic, racial and social justice at work and in our communities.

Happy Labor Day.

In solidarity,

Team OPEIU
