Tuesday, March 15th is not just the Ides of March, it is also Humanities Advocacy Day in Washington, DC.  National Endowment for the Humanities Chairman William “Bro” Adams will deliver the speech “Beyond the 50th: New Directions at NEH,” and according to an advanced copy of the speech, we at CCHA are elated to hear that he outlines the plan to “invest more heavily in this [Community College Humanities] sector, beginning with grants that will be announced in late March of this year.” This is just the beginning of the push for the humanities, and we want you to help us get the word out tomorrow!

We know that most people will not be able to walk the halls of congress and speak to your elected representatives first hand, but we will be sending out an alert courtesy of the Nation al Humanities Alliance that will outline what you can do to help ensure that the humanities continue to receive the vital funding that ensures future generations will be able to study the dynamic field that we all  know and love.

Check back with us tomorrow for more!
