Protect Your Access to Public Media


Congress is working to finalize federal funding for public media, and your action can make a difference. Email your Member of Congress to protect your access to public media. Instructions to complete the form, and review and send your message are below.

Ahead of the March 8th deadline, a group of congressional leaders are negotiating funding levels for each government program.

Almost every public media program was defunded in a House bill. Even though the Senate legislation preserves these programs, we must ensure the final bills do not cut funding and weaken your local public media service.

A small federal investment – about $1.60 per person annually – allows you to access public media’s award-winning programming and public services. There is no substitute for federal funding.

If public media is your trusted source for news and information, education, and inspiration, we’re counting on YOU to make your voice heard.
