2019 Humanities on the Hill

Tuesday, March 5th - Thursday, March 7th | Washington, DC

About Humanities on the Hill

Humanities on the Hill (HOH), the annual national advocacy event conducted by the Federation of State Humanities Councils, brings together members from across the nation to meet with their congressional representatives, share advocacy best practices, and present a united message about the value of the humanities. During this event, we advocate for funding for the National Endowment of the Humanities (NEH) and the NEH Federal/State Partnership, which administers funding for the state humanities councils. 

To learn why federal funding for the state humanities councils is important to our nation, visit our advocacy page.
