Why is it important to advocate for the public humanities? Public humanities allow for opportunities to explore human history, culture, values, and beliefs. This exploration helps the collective be more informed and empathetic, which often leads to a deeper understanding of oneself and others.
We maintain that the humanities make the world safe for difference. If you value what that means, please consider being a public humanities advocate. Advocacy comes in many forms. Check out our suggestions below.
As we advocate for the power and impact of the public humanities, we'll keep you informed. Whether it's program results that we're sharing with New Jersey communities or our advocacy efforts directed towards elected officials (think our annual trek to Humanities on the Hill!), we'll share information in our digital space, so you're invited to visit our website often. And we know we couldn't do it without you. No matter how you choose to advocate, be assured your voices are making a difference. Thank you for your continued support!
If you believe in the positive impact of public humanities programming, please consider donating to NJCH. Your tax-deductible contribution will support dynamic projects and events in diverse communities in our state. Your support is valued and appreciated.
