On Humanities Advocacy Day, state-based delegations will meet via video or conference call with Members of Congress and their staff.
It is essential that Congress hear about the challenges humanities departments, museums, libraries, archives, and other humanities organizations are facing due to the pandemic and what is to be lost without additional federal support.
Together, we will advocate for increased FY 2022 funding for the National Endowment for the Humanities, the National Archives and Records Administration, and the Department of Education’s international education programs (Title VI and Fulbright-Hays).
In the weeks leading up to Humanities Advocacy Day, we will offer an orientation on virtual advocacy and training on Capitol Hill advocacy more generally. New and seasoned advocates are welcome!
