URGENT: Please contact Congress today to save funding for the National Endowment for the Humanities. Today, the House of Representatives will consider an amendment to the FY 2024 Interior Appropriations bill that would eliminate funding for the NEH. It is crucial that your Members of Congress hear from you TODAY to ensure that Congress rejects this proposal. Let your Members of Congress know that you support the NEH!
