Urgent: Make your voice heard NOW for public broadcasting

February 10, 2011


There are moves in Washington, D.C. that would severely cut or eliminate funding for public broadcasting.

These cuts would cripple Iowa Public Television’s important work in Iowa – work that provides critical education, entertainment, public affairs, and cultural programming and services to all Iowans.

Take action and make your voice heard.  Please contact your Congressman and Senator by phone or email within the next few days and tell them how you feel about federal funding for public broadcasting, including Iowa Public Television.
