Free Press on the Ground

Free Press sends out lots of petitions, and we can always count on our activists to step up to the plate.

But our activists do far more than sign petitions. They take part in rallies, protests and town-hall meetings. They recruit fellow activists. They also attend in-district meetings with their members of Congress, inspect political files at their local TV stations, participate in forums on media policy, write letters to the editor and support our campaigns with financial contributions.
