LP radio promo

Hundreds of activists from around the country are descending upon Washington today to tell Congress that we need better and more diverse local radio. The Local Community Radio Act (H.R. 2802/ S. 1675) will open up the airwaves to more diverse, independent, Low Power FM (LPFM) radio stations.

Call on your elected officials to co-sponsor the Local Community Radio Act:

Read a Sample Script & Tell Us About Your Call

This important bill opens the radio dial to more community-driven and locally focused stations, providing news and information often ignored by mainstream radio -- information crucial to healthy communities and a vibrant democracy.

The bipartisan Local Community Radio Act would create hundreds, if not thousands, of new Low Power FM radio stations in towns across the country.

Tell Us About Your Call

Let's make sure your elected officials know that you support more and diverse local radio now.
