Current Initiative: Standing Together National Partner: NEH Local Partner: Other Subject: War/Veterans Audience: Veterans

The humanities can play an important role in articulating the unique issues and concerns faced by veterans. The North Carolina Humanities Council’s Veterans Reading Groups provide access to the humanities through stories, literature, and poetry which foster connections and provide context for veterans to explore issues regarding military service.

This program is offered in partnership with the Maine Humanities Council and eleven other state humanities councils across the country. It has received major support from the NEH’s Standing Together initiative, which was created to promote understanding of the military experience and to support returning veterans.
