We are all exposed in our daily lives to voices and forces that seek to divide us, to set us apart. The humanities help us recognize ourselves in others. Humanities Washington serves as an advocate and a facilitator of the connections between people that make our state “One Washington,” people working shoulder to shoulder for our future rather than as communities and people at odds with one another.
