The “United We Stand” speakers are available to book through the end of August!

The National Endowment of the Humanities, in cooperation with the White House, launched the initiative “United We Stand: Connecting Through Culture” to stem the nationwide increase of domestic extremism and hate-motivated violence.

One way NMHC is addressing the goals of the “United We Stand” initiative is through a  “special edition” catalog of speakers separate from our regular Speakers Bureau. The goal of this special catalog is to provide New Mexico communities–especially rural and underserved communities–with the opportunity to learn about the components of hate-motivated violence and the importance of cross-cultural understanding. Program topics include first hand stories of living in New Mexico’s Japanese internment camps, how comic books reflect and challenge American culture, poetry’s influence on the Civil War, an in depth look at the challenges faced by Filipino immigrants to New Mexico,  and even a frank and balanced discussion on gun violence and legislation. By booking or attending these talks, New Mexico residents can learn and grow together.

To find the United We Stand Speakers go to the Speakers Bureau Catalog, click “Browse Programs”, and select “United We Stand” under the series filter.
