Advocates Rally on Capitol Hill to Save the Corporation for Public Broadcasting

This morning we joined our allies Avaaz, Creative Majority PAC, MoveOn.org Civic Action and ParentsTogether Action to save funding for the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB) from Trump’s reckless budget.

After a rally on Capitol Hill featuring speeches from advocates including Free Press Action Fund President and CEO Craig Aaron and 9-year-old Iman Elkoustaf, we delivered 660,000 petitions to Congress. We’re calling on our senators to protect our access to public broadcasting and to think about what we would all lose without the CPB, which provides essential support to hundreds of NPR and PBS stations all over the country.

Check out our livestream of the petition delivery and scroll below for some photos from the rally:
