Executive Director Kimberlee Kihleng and Board Vice Chairwoman Marie Lizama will attend this year's Humanities on the Hill (HoH), an annual advocacy event hosted by the Federation of State Humanities Councils. They will join representatives from other state humanities councils from around the country to advocate for federal funding for the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) and the Federal/State Partnership Division. These federal funds are crucial to continuing the important public humanities work that is carried out in Guam, the larger Pacific Islands region and throughout the country.
