Advocate for the Humanities!

5 May 2014

As congress plans out the budget for FY 2015, we ask for your help in solidifying the funding for the National Endowment for the Humanities and the State Humanities Councils. With your endorsement, together we can show the importance of humanities and the role that state councils play in providing important and one of a kind programming to public audiences.

Attached is the letter being sent from the Federation of State Humanities Councils (FSHC) to the House Interior Appropriations Subcommittee advocating that they maintain funding. Please help us show that the humanities matter across our nation, especially in our great state of New Mexico.

To endorse the letter, we ask that you send your full name, title, organization, city, and state to info@nmhum.org by this Friday, April 25th.

Thank you for your continued support of the New Mexico Humanities Council and your role in promoting the public humanities throughout our state!
