The President's budget calls for the elimination of the National Endowment for the Humanities and other cultural agencies. It is important both to call and to write legislators to let them know you oppose these cuts. Ideally, they would hear from as many Tennesseans as possible right now to have a sense of how these programs are meaningful to communities all over the state. Save the humanities!
