We The People

To support up to 7 community projects focusing on the stories of immigrants and refugees in the state, with particular emphasis on young people, and to support a panel discussion and educational outreach in Southwest Washington as part of the Bicentennial observance of the Lewis and Clark expedition.

Humanities Washington seeks funding for two major projects, one an initiative aimed at exploring the many diverse stories of the people of our state with a particular emphasis on the stories of immigrants, stories that form a core of American history. The second project is part of a major event marking the bicentennial of the Lewis and Clark Expedition and their arrival on the west coast. WTP funding will support a panel discussion to elucidate the historical truth and deconstruct the myth of Sacagawea.
