Save Public Broadcasting!

WHY ALL THE FUSS OVER PUBLIC BROADCASTING?  IT’S 1500 NABET JOBS NATIONWIDE AND THOUSANDS MORE NON-UNION POSITIONS.  IT’S ALSO THE ONLY VIABLE ALTERNATIVE TO COMMERCIAL ENTERTAINMENT AND NEWS!  GET UP AND DO SOMETHING!

Hello All,

I see from our numbers that we need many more handwritten letters. We literally need one letter, one phone call, and one email from every member. I cannot stress this enough as we are literally down to the wire. The house vote will take place tonight or tomorrow. Then we need to put pressure on the Senate. Every one of our members needs to get involved in this effort. We also need help from friends and family members.

Thanks for your participation.  Here are the pieces of the campaign:

1) Salsa write Congress http://action.cwa-union.org/c/797/p/dia/action/public/?action_KEY=1426

2) 800 Number to place those calls to Congress: 1-877-426-8013

3) Handwritten Letters – Fax to 202 434-1426, also send them to the District office of your Congressional Representative and U.S. Senators –  look that up on website.  Or there is an app for that, or : http://www.votesmart.org/

4) Or Text CPBFUND to 69866.

Timing, we expect the vote in the House this coming week.  The Congress is scheduled for vacation from February 21st to 25th.  The Continuing Resolution expires on March 4th.  So votes first in the House and then in the Senate are very likely in the next 3 weeks.
