Act Now to Support Humanities Funding

Funding support local preservation efforts like the History in the Making. A  Series that was held in Prince Georges County.  This program was made possible by a grant from the Maryland Humanities Council, through support from the National Endowment for the Humanities. 

 Yesterday, Paul Ryan called for the complete elimination of funding for the National Endowment for the Humanities in his FY 2015 budget resolution. 

 Help defeat the Ryan Proposal today by urging your elected officials to join a bipartisan effort to support NEH. By signing on to the Senate “Dear Colleague” letter, your Senators can demonstrate support for NEH funding to the appropriations committee members that hold the agency’s future in their hands.

 Click here to send our message to your Senators today. They are waiting to hear from you.


If you sent a message last week, thank you. If you haven’t sent one yet, it is critical that you act now. The deadline for Senators to sign on to the letter is Friday, April 4.
