Briefing Papers

Each year Preservation Action, in cooperation with our partners, brings the cause of preservation directly to Congress during National Historic Preservation Advocacy Week. To prepare the hundreds of preservationists for their meetings with their representatives, we provide briefing papers on each of our targeted priorities and have a unified ask for action by representatives. The effectiveness of our Advocacy Week comes from our collective strength as our members come together for the singular purpose of advancing and improving the federal historic preservation program.
The following downloadable PDF documents were prepared for Advocacy Week 2018 which brought nearly 250 preservationists to Washington, DC, to meet with over 200 representatives. Check out our Advocacy Week page for more information!
