Tell Congress How You Feel: Your Voice Matters!
Congress will soon vote on a proposal to eliminate all federal support for public broadcasting. The complete loss of federal funding threatens WMHT's ability to serve our region with the news, information, classical music and the entertainment you rely on. Whatever your opinion is, your elected Representative needs to hear from you now. Your voice can make a difference.
Call your representative today (phone calls are more effective than e-mails or letters; the vote could happen very soon).

Cutting off federal dollars cuts off America's most trusted source of news and perspective...programs that educate our children and enrich our classrooms...efforts proven to boost lagging skills in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics...and productions that bring the arts to everyone--all this for about $1.35 per U.S. citizen per year!
If you believe that these services and WMHT are too valuable to lose, and that public media is worth this modest amount, please don't sit back. Don't wait; our nation needs a strong public broadcasting system.
Call your Congressional Representative to let them know you're one of the 170 million Americans who rely on public media services. Federal funds help support the network which makes it possible for communities large and small across our region to have access to ideas, information and inspiring works together.
