Here are three things you can do to help move this effort forward

Posted

We are counting on members of America's Newspapers again this year to join forces to help ensure the success of this legislation.

Here's where your help is urgently needed:

  1. We need your effort and focus in educating our federal representatives on this matter now. As a leader of your organization, please call your local representatives (US House and Senate) and let them know of the serious challenge facing your newspaper and local journalism and that we need their leadership by co-sponsoring this bill. We are seeking 100 co-sponsors from across this country and political ideology.
  2. Educate your readers through local editorials on the tenants of this act, and why supporting local journalism and the ecosystem that serves it will only enhance the place they call home. An editorial and editorial cartoon are available for reprint from America's Newspapers at http://newspapers.org/ljsa/.   
  3. Please let me (dridings@newspapers.org) know the response you get from your representatives and how America's Newspapers can assist you in this process.

Thank you, in advance, for your good work on behalf of the newspaper industry!
