SB 805: "Save the Performing Arts Act of 2021" Resources

This absolutely ambitious bill calls for two things:

  • Significant matching funding to small non-profit performing arts organizations “Performing Arts Equitable Payroll Fund”

  • Creation of a statewide paymaster that will take on the responsibility of payroll services at very low cost for these organizations.

From now until Monday the Senators on the Labor Committee need to hear from constituents and California residents about SB 805.

Please take a few minutes to call each of the Senators' District Office and ask your colleagues, company members and audiences to do the same.  The District offices brief the Senators on how many calls they receive from constituents about each issue. Below is the script when you call the district offices:


"Hello, my name is XXX and I am a resident of your district or (as a resident of California who supports the performing arts)

and I urge Senator XXX to vote yes on SB 805 at the upcoming Appropriations Committee meeting on May 10th.

Thank you"

*don't forget to add your own story or why this bill is important to you! 

Phone calls are the priorities, but you can also email their offices, or message them via social media.

Call these Senators before Monday May 10th
