Capitol Hill Day 2011 Information

Capitol Hill Day 2011 is just around the corner, and APTS looks forward to welcoming you to Washington in a few days. Our advocacy efforts this year will be simplified to focus on a common goal untied all of public broadcasting—the preservation of the federal investment in our public/private partnership for the benefit of the millions of Americans we serve.

To assist Capitol Hill Day registrants in preparing for your visit to Washington, APTS is making available the Capitol Hill Day materials online. Hard copies of these materials will also be available when you check-in at the registration desk on Sunday and Monday.

Capitol Hill Day Issue Briefs

This year we are focusing on a condensed message: That public broadcasting is doing things in our communities that no one else will, and continued federal funding is essential to local public broadcasting stations. Each of these issue briefs frames our requests in a manner consistent with that message.

Local Case Statements

Because of the focus on this message we are not generating district specific information, but we are encouraging all stations to supplement the materials provided by APTS with their own local examples and stories of how they are meeting their community’s needs in unique ways, and why federal funding is critical to each local station. Two good examples of local case statements are:
