NYSUT and its SUNY higher education affiliate, United University Professions, are fighting proposed state budget cuts that would eliminate a unique educational and cultural resource for our children: the New York State Theatre Institute. That's why we are calling on all our members to tell state lawmakers to reject the cuts and preserve NYSTI. Help protect this internationally acclaimed arts-in-education program. Take action to save NYSTI today.
