Lt. Governor Zuckerman Joins The State Military and Veterans Arts Initiative
At the National Lieutenant Governors’ Annual meeting in Nashville, TN, Lt. Governor Zuckerman signed on to The State Military and Veterans Arts Initiative. This collaboration between the National Lieutenant Governors Association (NLGA) and Americans for the Arts aims to increase visibility, understanding, and support for the care of persons across the military continuum (active duty and reserve service members, veterans, their families, and caregivers) and the role the arts can play in their health and wellness.
“I was excited to add my name to this initiative and look forward to working with the NLGA and the Vermont Arts Council to extend support to those who serve in the military,” said Lt. Governor Zuckerman. He continued, “Collaboratives like these are win-win and allow states to share information and bring local successes to the national level.”
“The Vermont Arts Council fully supports this important collaboration,” said Interim Executive Director Teri Bordenave. “It’s simple: The arts improve lives. As we continue our work to ensure that everyone in Vermont has access to the arts, we applaud this like-minded effort of the National Lieutenant Governors Association and Americans for the Arts.”
The NLGA will make available a range of information resources, education programs, and visibility/engagement opportunities to assist Vermont in building arts programs and awareness of opportunities for military service members.
