Remind Congress that you value federal funding at Protect My Public Media

This week, the House of Representatives will debate a spending package for next year. The bill currently includes public media funding but it’s important that we continue to engage our lawmakers to push this vital funding past the finish line. Federal funding enables our station to bring you the best news, educational, local and cultural programming and vital community and public safety services. If you value these programs and services, please visit www.protectmypublicmedia.org to sign up for updates, take action and learn why public media funding is both an essential and excellent investment.

WXXI is a proud partner of Protect My Public Media, a collaboration of local public radio and television stations, national distributors, producers, viewers, listeners and others who support a strong public media in the United States. The campaign is an effective tool to protect future federal funding for public media stations. Find out more about the campaign at www.protectmypublicmedia.org.
