Take Action: Share Your Message on the Hill in Support of Federal Funding for Our Discipline

In 2022, both the National Humanities Alliance (NHA) Annual Meeting and Humanities Advocacy Day (March 14-15) and COSSA’s Social Science Advocacy Day (March 29) were held virtually. The virtual events afforded MPSA members and members of the political science community a great opportunity to make their voice heard on Capitol Hill while saving time and travel expenses. Please check back later for more information on the 2023 advocacy days and available MPSA grants to participate.
