With Fiscal Year (FY) 2018 funding finished, Congress will soon start its work on FY 2019. “Protect My Public Media” leaders say it will again be vital to remind lawmakers that you support public media.
“Important groundwork has already been laid by advocates who asked lawmakers to sign the public media support letters. Thanks to their outreach, the House of Representatives letter secured a record-breaking number of signatures and the Senate letter is on its way to attaining similar results,” they wrote in a recent email to to constituents.
