Thank you for attending the sixth annual History Advocacy Day in Wisconsin on March 22nd, 2023!

 View the event agenda here!

History advocates from around the state are invited to join the Society to thank lawmakers for their ongoing support of Wisconsin history and highlight the critical role that state and local history play in collecting, preserving, and sharing stories. Write a letter, make a call, or schedule a meeting to advocate for history in Wisconsin!

Your participation makes a tremendous impact. History advocates like you create enthusiasm and promote the need to preserve and share our stories from generation to generation. Over the past two years more than ever, history organizations have displayed resilience and ingenuity in continuing to connect the public with the past in new and innovative ways. Read more about the amazing impact you make in a personal letter from Ruth & Hartley Barker Director and CEO, Christian Øverland here.

Help us thank our lawmakers for their past support of history and spread awareness of all that our organizations do throughout the entire state and in local communities!

Talking points and training will be provided by the Wisconsin Historical Society. Learn more about "Becoming an Advocate of Wisconsin History" by viewing the webinar linked here.
