Ask Your Lawmakers to Go on Record Supporting Public Media


Urge your lawmakers to go on record with their support for annual federal funding for public media. Call your lawmakers’ Washington, D.C. offices now.

Members of Congress are asking their colleagues to sign letters endorsing annual federal funding for public media. The letters will be delivered to the Appropriations subcommittees responsible for determining the amount of funding public media stations will receive. The subcommittees use these letters to measure support for public media and draft their annual appropriations bills.

Collecting a significant number of congressional signatures will:

  • Show the subcommittees that Congress, like most Americans, broadly supports federal funding for public media.
  • Persuade the subcommittees to propose healthy investments for local public radio and television stations in the draft Fiscal Year 2023 funding bills.
