As the tourism industry continues to be severely impacted by the ongoing COVID-19 crisis, it is now more important than ever to reach out to our elected leaders at all levels of government to advocate on the industry’s behalf.
The SDTA shared its support by signing on to this coalition letter that will be delivered to California Governor Gavin Newsom and members of the Senate and Assembly Budget Committees requesting a $45 million budget allocation for Visit California to run a robust campaign when the state is ready to reopen.
As part of California Tourism Month, Visit California has created a toolkit to help hospitality organizations advocate for the state’s tourism industry with a variety of resources including social media graphics and talking points for elected officials.
Contact your local state representatives to let them know what they can do to support the tourism industry as California looks to reopen its economy.
