Urge Congress to Increase Public Media Funding


Congress is actively considering federal funding for public media. Urge your Members of Congress to increase public media funding. Fill out your information and send your email now.

Through our collective outreach, we’ve begun to reverse the effects of ten years of frozen federal funding. We must keep up the momentum to improve the financial health of our nation’s public media stations.

Among the last locally managed and controlled media outlets in the country, public media stations are essential to our communities, our democracy, and our nation’s future.

Increased federal support will allow stations to continue to fill gaps in local journalism, help bridge the digital divide in education, expand lifesaving emergency communications, support jobseekers, and contribute to cultural preservation and discovery.

Registering your support now can strengthen your local public media stations into the future.
