The National Humanities Alliance (NHA) is an advocacy coalition dedicated to the advancement of humanities education, research, preservation, and public programs. The Annual Meeting and Humanities Advocacy Day provided participants the opportunity to: connect with a growing network of humanities leaders from around the country; learn about communicating the value of the humanities to Members of Congress; explore national humanities policy; and become year-round advocates for the humanities. Sessions were held at George Washington University and on Capitol Hill.
