• Increased federal funding for the National Archives and Records Administration, including the National Historical Publications and Records Commission (NHPRC); the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH); historical and preservation programs at the National Park Service; the Department of Education; the Institute of Museum and Library Services; and the Library of Congress.
  • Federal agency and regulatory issues such as expediting the declassification of federal records and maximizing access for historians and researchers to our nation’s documentary history.
  • Support the adoption of “Civics Secures Democracy Act,” legislation to provide $5 billion in federal funding over the next five fiscal years to improve K-12 US History and Civics Education.
  • We oppose the passage of so-called “divisive concepts” legislation by state legislatures. Such bills are designed to limit discussion about racism, sexism, and discrimination in the classroom and/or the workplace. They endanger the academic freedom essential to all classrooms, especially those where history is the focus of discussion and debate.
