Action Alert from National Humanities Alliance

Via National Humanities Alliance:

We are working with the Congressional Humanities Caucus to build support for this funding. Together, we are urging significant supplemental funding for the National Endowment for the Humanities to support: 

  • Direct emergency grants to humanities organizations (museums, libraries, historical societies, cultural organizations, and professional associations) that can be applied to operational expenses to sustain them in this time of crisis. 
  • Funding for state humanities councils to distribute emergency grants to organizations in their state.
  • NEH funding lines to bolster humanities organizations, colleges, and universities in developing the digital content that is now necessary for classroom use and for the digital resources to sustain communities during this moment of crisis.  
  • Virtual professional development opportunities to support K-12 teachers and higher education faculty in developing rich humanities curricula that can be delivered virtually.

Take action here.
