Let's Cut Some Spending: $1 million to promote 'dance equity'

Remember the absolutely critical Omnibus spending bill Congress muscled through at the end of last year? It was 4,000 pages that no one read and cost taxpayers $1.7 trillion.

In our Let's Cut Some Spending series, ForAmerica will chronicle parts of the 2021 and 2022 spending bills from a variety of sources that you probably don't know about - programs, grants and spending of all kinds that should have never happened in the first place and many that are still happening.

Today’s offering: $1 million to promote 'dance equity!’

Entertainment news site Broadway World reports:

Dance Institute of Washington has been awarded $1 million dollars through recent funding in House Appropriation Bills secured by Congresswoman Elenor Holmes Norton (D-DC). DIW is the leading minority-led pre-professional dance equity organization in the nation's capital. The organization supports students from underserved communities, balancing artistic excellence at the highest level with life-building skills focused on empowerment, academic discipline, emotional support and nutritional guidance…
"It is my honor to fight for D.C. in Congress, and I am proud to have secured this much-needed funding," Norton said.
For DIW, the money will help address long-standing issues supporting equity.

SERIOUSLY? We're spending a million taxpayer dollars on having more 'equity...'
