March 31, 2017: RALLY TO SAVE THE ARTS

Encore: March 30, 2017

President Trump has just cut all funding to the National Endowment for the Arts and to PBS. Calling this “an assault on arts, culture, and libraries”, lawmakers will rally outside City Hall in protest on Monday. Councilman Jimmy Van Bramer will be there but first he stops by to tell us why this is such an important issue.
