Please contact the offices of your senators and representatives in the U.S. Congress. Emphasize our most immediate priorities and be prepared to explain our longer-term measures.
Remember that you are advocating on behalf of the communities you serve with vital news and information during this pandemic and when at last we are on the other side of this crisis.
Remind our elected officials that we are, in effect, the first responders in our communities for information — trusted, reliable, fact-based, verified information.
The vast majority of these requests fall technically within the jurisdiction of the House Ways and Means Committee and the Senate Finance Committee, whose memberships are linked below. Please review that list and place calls or emails into whichever offices you may feel you have a relationship with or otherwise feel comfortable contacting.
And of course, always emphasize your own personal stories and how the coronavirus crisis has markedly worsened your financial position in an already tough market, threatening both your livelihood and that of your employees, and destroying the ability of your local communities to receive the news they need in these stressful times when every day sees changing developments BOTH nationally and regionally.
