Action Alert: Oppose Elimination of IMLS and NEH!

April 3, 2014--House Budget Committee Chair Paul Ryan has proposed elimination of the Institute of Museum and Library Services and the National Endowment for the Humanities in the FY 15 federal budget.  Contact your Member of Congress now to state your opposition to Ryan’s budget proposal.  Ask him/her to contact Rep. Ryan and the members of the House Budget Committee to support robust funding for these critically important agencies. Tell your Representative specifically how IMLS and/or NEH funding has benefited your organization or the archives or cultural institutions in your region or state.
