Action Alert: Help the AAR Advocate for the National Endowment for the Humanities
Update March 16, 2017: The Trump Administration has issued a Presidential Budget Request that calls for the elimination of the National Endowment for the Humanities, along with other cultural agencies. Click here to tell Congress to oppose this proposal!
January 23, 2017: Last week we heard a report that the administration of President Donald Trump will seek to eliminate funding for the National Endowment for the Humanities and other federal cultural agencies. You can read the report here.
For half a century, Congress has supported the NEH, and in that time the Endowment has funded the work of many AAR members and their institutions. You can advocate for the NEH by telling your congressional representatives and the President that you value funding for the humanities.
The AAR is a member of the National Humanities Alliance, which is dedicated to advocacy for the NEH specifically, and the humanities and humanistic social sciences more generally. You can learn more about the Alliance’s plans to secure funding for the NEH here.
Thanks for showing your support of the NEH!
