National Humanities Advocacy Day

Visit Your Legislator On Capital Hill

AAA, as part of  National Humanities Advocacy Day will be participating in a number of meetings on Capital Hill to stress the importance of funding for the National Endowment for the Humanities and the National Endowment for the Arts.

Each year, the American Anthropological Association is a co-sponsor of National Humanities Day, an event sponsored by the National Humanities Alliance, a non-profit coalition of about 80 state, local and regional professional associations, including AAA.

This year’s event will be held March 11, and is an unique opportunity for AAA members interested in humanities policy and advocacy to petition Congress for increased funding for the NEH, NEA, the National Science Foundation, and other programs important to the humanities community.

If you are interested in participating, please send your name address and email to Damon Dozier, AAA Director of Public Affairs at
