National Humanities Alliance 2019 Annual Meeting and Advocacy Day

Last month, CCAHA staff were among nearly 200 humanities advocates who gathered in Washington, DC, to make the case on Capitol Hill for federally-funded humanities programs. As our friends at the  National Humanities Alliance (NHA) report ed , advocates from 41 states took a total of 287 meetings asking representatives to sign two letters: the House NEH Dear Colleague Letter and the House Title VI/Fulbright-Hays Dear Colleague Letter.

We're pleased to learn that both letters received a record number of signers! Earlier this month, CCAHA  took to social media  to thank our representatives from Pennsylvania who signed on to support humanities funding, and we encourage you to do the same.  Click here to read the update from NHA and see if your representative has signed. If so, please take a moment to thank them.
