Dear H-PAD members and supporters,
The purpose of this email is to solicit your views on our organization’s direction. H-PAD’s Steering Committee meets in-person this Saturday, May 20, and we want to know what you think: what should be H-PAD’s top priorities, heading into 2024? Please write us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com with your ideas and suggestions.
Here’s a report on what we have done.
Over the past twelve months, Historians for Peace & Democracy has mobilized to fight the Right’s attack on “honest history,” see SC member Molly Nolan’s excellent article in Public Seminar.
In January, we produced our ongoing Culture Wars Against Education Archive, continually updated.
This spring, Historians-On-Call has put down roots, with our new organizer, Simon Judkins, developing networks in key states as we partner with national organizations of historians and K-12 educators.
With Radical History Review, we already have a full roster for the 2024 American Historical Association’s Annual Meeting, including a roundtable asking “Is the United States Turning Towards Fascism?” with Professors Carol Anderson, Linda Gordon, and David Hollinger.
So let us know your thoughts. And send us money! We are ramping up in terms of staff time and resources, including a brand-new website, so we ask you to support our Organizing Fund.
Van Gosse and Margaret Power, Co-Chairs
