MARAC Statement on the Proposed Fiscal Year (FY) 2018 Federal Budget

 

As guardians of all manner of historic documentation for the sake of future generations, the members of the Mid-Atlantic Regional Archives Conference (MARAC) strongly oppose the proposed fiscal year (FY) 2018 budget from the 45th President of the United States of America. Any federal budget that eliminates support for the arts and humanities demonstrates that this country makes no commitment to those very elements that define the human experience and those institutions that preserve our national heritage. We are a better nation than what this budget represents.  

 

While scholars and artists will most feel the consequences of this proposed budget, it will also harm the archival profession for years to come. MARAC members are encouraged to contact their congressional representatives to urge opposition to any proposed budget that eliminates funding for the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH), the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA), the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars, and the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS).
