POST CARD TEXT
Dear Senator (or Representative) (their full name):

As your constituent and supporter of the Arts in your district, I ask you to support the Georgia Council for the Arts and the restoration of state arts funding.

The Arts are essential for our community. The nonprofit arts have a $166 billion economic impact, support 4.6 million jobs, and generate $27.5 billion in government revenue in the U.S.
