Tell Congress Why the Humanities Matter

The current political climate surrounding the humanities is contentious, including several recent attempts to defund federally programs that support humanities research, language training, and public humanities programs in communities nationwide. We encourage you to contact your Congressional representatives and let them know why humanities funding matters to you and how it makes a difference in your community.
