The House leadership has recommended that we "zero out" all funding for public broadcasting in the new budget.
For too long a few extreme members in Congress have been waging a misinformation campaign designed to undermine NPR and PBS and strip funding for your local public media stations. Help us protect funding for public media: Tell your lawmakers why public media matters.
In the last five years, states have slashed hundreds of millions of dollars from public broadcasters and in some cases launched plans to phase out funding altogether. In recent weeks, more states — including Maine, Oklahoma and Rhode Island — have called for cuts. Damaging legislation and federal budget cuts are chipping away at important funding streams for NPR, PBS and community media outlets around the country.
Help us beat back this latest attack on NPR and PBS. Our elected officials must protect funding for public media.
