Save the NEH and NEA

As many of you all likely know the National Endowment for the Humanities and the National Endowment for the Arts are federal agencies that promote, support, and fund research in the humanities and the arts. These organizations are under attack for severe budget cuts and possible elimination under the Trump administration. I won’t rehearse the list of reasons why the arts and humanities are so crucial for a democratic citizenry in this age of “alternative facts.”

What I will ask is that you take a minute and register your support for these crucial organizations. Clicking this link will help you draft an email to your legislators expressing your support. You can also sign this petition.

Thanks for your support.
