NHA Annual Meeting and Humanities Advocacy Day


National Humanities Alliance

Interested in making the case for the public value of the humanities? Here are two options!

#1: Join us in March to advocate for the humanities on Capitol Hill

The NHA Annual Meeting and Humanities Advocacy Day is coming up on March 11th - 13th.

If you have not yet registered, click here to register today!

This year’s event will provide ample opportunity to connect with a growing number of humanities advocates from around the country. Together, we will explore approaches to year-round advocacy on college campuses and in local communities while also preparing for Capitol Hill visits. On March 13, we will visit House and Senate offices to make a persuasive case for federal funding for the humanities.

The meeting will be held at the Washington Court Hotel, located just down the street from the U.S. Capitol. If you are traveling from out of town, please claim your space in the hotel room block.

Please book your room now as space is limited.
