This World Press Freedom Day, we’re taking direct action.
PEN America, the National Hispanic Media Coalition, Free Press, Society of Professional Journalists, LION Publishers, Colorado Media Project, Native American Journalists Association, Common Cause, and the Alliance for Community Media are participating in a Day of Action to mobilize supporters across the country to use their voice to save local news. On May 3, thousands of Americans will contact their U.S. senators and representatives and call on them to support the Future of Local News Commission Act.
This Act would establish a federal advisory commission to study the decline of local news and propose solutions for the industry’s revitalization.
Join us by sending your members of Congress a message in support of local news.
