The Educating for Democracy Act of 2020 
http://historycoalition.org/2020/12/02/bill-to-provide-1-billion-in-support-of-k-12-history-civics-education-introduced/
This has been introduced to the Senate to provide $1 billion per-year for five years to improve the teaching of history and civics. Subgrants to local educational agencies and qualified nonprofits would be included.  While the bill will not be considered this year, it will be introduced when the new Congress convenes in January.   The National Humanities Alliance’s website allows you to send a pre-written letter to your two senators about this bill.   Contact your senators now to lay the groundwork for next year’s advocacy efforts.
