Like publicly broadcasted media, like NPR (90.1 FM) or PBS? Well, if you want to keep these engaging medias open and free to the public, you need to let Congress know by signing this petition.

In a budget proposal made last week, House Republicans announced that they wanted to completely cut federal funding for the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, which supports NPR, PBS, Pacifica and many more nonprofit public broadcasts. By signing this petition, however, you can make a difference and keep public broadcast fully functional.
