The current administration plans to eliminate the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH). As an affiliate of the NEH, we distribute and leverage federal dollars to libraries, museums, festivals, and community events across the state. Without the support of our representatives in Washington D.C., this funding could vanish.
We are heartened that we have allies across the political spectrum who understand that the humanities are vital for the cultural, civic, and economic life of our country. But our representatives need to hear their voices in order for them to take action.
What You Can Do
1. Call or email your elected officials and tell them how you and your community have benefited from humanities programs in Oregon.
2. Attend a member of Congress’s town hall or other open meeting to voice your support for the NEH.
3. Spread the word. Let your friends and family in other states know about the important work the NEH makes possible around the country and encourage them to contact their elected officials in support of the humanities.
7. Sign up for our email list to stay up to date on news and opportunities to advocate for the humanities.
