GroundSwell and PCCY Stand up for Arts Education at City Council on May 16!

Public Citizens for Children and Youth (PCCY), Greater Philadelphia Cultural Alliance, GroundSwell and students from George W. Nebinger Elementary School held a direct action at City Hall calling for greater public funding for arts and arts education.

Arts Education Hero capes were presented to Councilpersons María Quiñones-Sánchez and Blondell Reynolds Brown, and students put on a singing performance.

We will be at City Council every Thursday through mid-June to continue advocating for increased funding for Philadelphia's public schools and arts education programs.  Sign up for our email list to stay posted on how you can join us.
