A Grassroots Effort Rallies Behind Public Television

Posted on February 11, 2011



Every month, more than 170 million Americans use public radio, television and online services for news, education, arts and cultural content. That's a majority of the country. Over the next few days, Congress will take a critical vote to eliminate all federal support for public broadcasting.

At ITVS, funding for public broadcasting is critical to help us continue to support Independent films and filmmakers in creating diverse content that reflects all Americans. The Association of Public Television Stations (APTS) has implemented a grassroots effort for supporters of Pub TV to have a voice in telling Congress what they think of the proposed cuts. At its core, public broadcasting belongs to the American people . Let your voice be heard and participate in the campaign by visiting: http://www.170millionamericans.org/
