Dear President Obama,

I support your campaign pledge to create an "Artist Corps" of young artists trained to work in low-income schools and their communities. [Source: Barack Obama Platform in Support of the Arts, February 2008].

An "Artist Corps" will help create a sustainable environment for those with creative skills to engage in meaningful service to create community change.

Now is the time to establish a national "Artist Corps" in America.
