Dear <Insert Representative/ Senator Last Name>:
As a constituent living in [Insert City/Town], I am writing to convey my support for the National Endowments for the Arts (NEA) and Humanities (NEH). As an integral part of a well-rounded arts and sciences education, investments in the arts and humanities foster a globally competitive workforce, strengthen civic engagement, preserve our heritage, and protect national security.
As you know, the NEA and NEH are the primary sources for arts and humanities research, teaching, preservation, and public programming in the United States. Additionally, NEA and NEH funding strengthen the cultural infrastructure of communities like ours in every state and territory across the nation.
I know you will face tough decisions in the months ahead. The NEA and NEH are outstanding stewards of the relatively small amount of federal support they receive annually. That’s why I want you to know that I believe that federal investments in the NEA and NEH should be a stronger priority.
Thank you for your service and please add me to your newsletter list to keep me informed about your activities.
