News outlets recently began reporting on the possible plan to eliminate funding for the National Endowment for the Humanities, the National Endowment for the Arts, and other important agencies critical to our American democracy. Many of us thought the same thing: We won’t let this happen. Kansans depend on the humanities.
At this time, the threat of elimination exists in a report and not in an actual budget. We remain heartened by the bipartisan support we have seen for the humanities in Congress over the last 45 years. We’ll work hard to make sure it stays that way, but we are going to need your help.
Are you willing to speak up on behalf of the humanities and the Kansas Humanities Council? Click here and let us know. When the time is right, we will call on you first to share our story with your member of Congress.
Here are two things you can do right now:
- Sign up to be the first to know.
- Share this message with a friend.
Thank you for your support of the humanities!
