To Our Carolyn Dorfman Dance Family,

As Carolyn often says, dance has the power to “speak” in powerful ways. As an organization, our mission is to use movement to bring people together and spark social change.

Today is National Voter Registration Day, and there is no better time for our community to join us in taking action towards a more just and equitable world. In the spirit of Tikkun (To Repair), we encourage our friends, families, audience members and colleagues to be socially conscious citizens in the following ways:

Complete Your Census

The census provides critical data for administering daily services, products, and support for you and your community.

More importantly, the results of the census also determine the number of seats each state will have in the U.S. House of Representatives, and they are used to draw congressional and state legislative districts.

There are only 8 days left to complete the census.

Ask Your Legislators to Support the Arts

Arts and culture is an $878 billion industry in the U.S. (nonprofit, commercial, education)—a larger share of the nation’s economy (4.5%) than transportation, tourism, and agriculture (U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis). The sector has been devastated by the COVID-19 pandemic, Nationally, financial losses to nonprofit arts and cultural organizations are an estimated $13.1 billion, to date. To learn more, visit americansforthearts.org.

In New Jersey, the state budget will be voted on September 25 (this Friday). Please remind your state legislators that public funding proposed for arts, history, and tourism is critical to these industries. State funding is needed to keep the nonprofit arts industry moving forward in recovery.

Together, we can move our municipalities, state and country towards a better future.

Sincerely,
