Voice your support, and let Congress know that federal funding for the humanities makes a difference in Wyoming!
What You Can Do!
1. Call or write your Congressional delegation
2. Write a letter to the editor
Write a letter to the editor of the newspaper in your hometown or region. Letters to the editor are generally 250 words or under. We encourage you to write in your own words and from your personal perspective. Remember that your best justifications are the benefits to your own community. Tell your humanities story and how we’ve made a difference!
3. Voice your support via social media
Post a message on Facebook or Twitter asking your friends, family, and co-workers to voice their support for the humanities and include the link to our advocacy page: www.thinkwy.org/advocacy
