A New Congress, A New Beginning

By Cait Beroza |

Today, we begin making this year’s case to Congress for continued, robust federal funding for public media.

The new 116th Congress will be sworn on Thursday, January 3, 2019. Today, we have an opportunity to welcome lawmakers and request that they invest in public media funding this year.

Email your lawmakers in support of federal funding for public media.

There are more than 100 newly elected lawmakers in the new Congress and most of them have not taken a position on public media funding. The communications you send will help inform your lawmakers’ stances on our issue.

You can make a positive impression on the new Congress by emailing your lawmakers now.

Starting today, we can lay important groundwork with new and returning lawmakers alike to secure federal funding for the local stations that we value and need.
