Half of Washington State children do not enter kindergarten ready to learn, and Latino children, in particular, face a long list of barriers to success in school. Through programs such as Humanities Washington's Motheread Family Literacy Program, disadvantaged families from across the state gain the opportunity to come together around the collective power of story, building literacy skills, pride in their culture, and a greater understanding of other cultures as a result.

Board of Trustees

Humanities Washington's Board of Trustees

Humanities Washington is governed by a board of trustees who represent the many key constituencies crucial to our work: museums, heritage organizations, universities, scholarly organizations, professional groups, schools, foundations, and corporations. 

One in six trustees are appointed by the Governor, and the remainder elected from nominations submitted by partners and the general public. Members are drawn from across Washington and represent the racial, ethnic, and cultural diversity of the state. Trustees are elected for renewable three-year terms, serve on at least two committees, and generally have a history of engagement with Humanities Washington. 

Nominations may be submitted to Executive Director Julie Ziegler.
