Target: United States Congress
Goal: Allow the National Women’s History Museum to purchase federal land to build a permanent museum
The National Women’s History Museum is a collection of exhibits and objects that emphasize the importance women have had in history. However, the museum does not yet exist in a single location. A bill has recently been introduced to Congress that will allow the museum to purchase federally owned land in Washington, D.C. to build the museum near other prominent museums of national importance.
The National Women’s History Museum was started to address the lack of women’s contributions in existing history museums. According to the Museum’s mission statement, ‘The National Women’s History Museum will be the first museum in any nation’s capital to show the full scope of the history of its women and will serve as a guiding light to people everywhere.’ The museum will provide a much needed view of the past that will help people across the country understand how much women have provided to the shaping of history.
If the museum is allowed to purchase the desired site for the permanent home, then the construction will be privately funded. There will be no taxpayer money going to the museum—in fact, the government will earn money from the sale of the land. The museum will be an important and essential addition to the many important museums of Washington, D.C. Tell Congress to allow the museum to build.
Dear United States Congress,
Recently, a bill was introduced to you that would allow the National Women’s History Museum to purchase federally owned land in Washington, D.C. in order to build a permanent location for the museum. This bill will only allow the museum to purchase the land. The construction will be privately funded, and not rely on taxpayer money.
I ask you to allow the National Women’s History Museum to purchase this land. The museum will bring a view of women’s history to many people that is often overlooked by other history museums. This is an important addition to existing museums in the area, and deserves to have its chance to bring history to people.
