Spring into Action: You Can Save the NEH and NEA (Again)
Last year, Phi Beta Kappa members like you helped to save the National Endowments for the Arts and Humanities. This spring, we can do it again.
In February, the White House called for the elimination of the nation’s cultural agencies in its FY2019 budget request. As you may know, Phi Beta Kappa played a pivotal role in the founding of the National Endowments for the Arts (NEA) and Humanities (NEH) in 1965. That’s why we are joining with the National Humanities Alliance and other organizations to rally support for NEA, NEH, the Department of Education’s international education programs, the Institute of Museum and Library Services, and the Woodrow Wilson Center for International Scholars.
Ultimately, Congress is responsible for writing the bills that fund the federal government. Now is the key time to help your Members of Congress understand the fundamental value of these agencies and programs to constituents like you. If you spring into action now, together we can save the nation’s cultural agencies again.
