The Million Plates Drive : Support the Arts in California!

 

Did you know that California ranks 49th in per capita funding for the arts? The only state with less funding is Kansas - and that's because they provide ZERO in public funds to support the arts.

California's annual state budget for the arts is a paltry five million dollars! That less than 14 cents per person!

But there is something you can do about it. Click this link to the "The Million Plates Drive" and order a specially designed "arts plate" (standard or personalized) for your vehicle through the DMV.

If one million plates are ordered, forty million dollars will be earmarked each year (via renewals) to support California's public arts fund - that's eight times the current amount (about one dollar per person).

That's forty million dollars to support arts education and local arts programs for children, schools and communities - in every county across the entire state.

Buy an "arts plate" now!
