OAH Endorses AHA Statement on Executive Order
The Executive Board of the OAH has endorsed and joined with the American Historical Association in its statement opposing President Trump's January 27 executive order. The AHA statement can be read here. Statements by ACLS Member Societies can be accessed here. Thirty AHA affiliated history organizations have done likewise and over thirty ACLS Member Societies have also spoken out against this presidential order. It is the Executive Board's hope that OAH members will be called upon to provide historical perspective for policy makers in the face of conflicting viewpoints over current events.
