National Impact Agenda

As our nation grapples with significant challenges-from racial injustice to climate change and the ongoing pandemic-the work of preservation has never been more important. At the same time, we at the National Trust hear calls for change in historic preservation practice and policy.

To ensure that the movement remains a resilient and relevant force for positive change, the National Impact Agenda aims to articulate our shared values and describe actions we can take-individually and collectively-to deepen the impacts of the work of historic preservation. Learn more about this ongoing effort and read the draft framework via the links below, including how you can provide feedback.
