ACT Celebrates Its Two Year Anniversary!
Here’s the radio interview that started it all.
There are well over 1,500 Public, Educational and Government (PEG) access centers in the United States. We estimate there may be as many as 5,000 cable television channels managed by these centers.
Whether it's local government meetings, school board sessions, religious or political programming, youth programming, distance learning, music or entertainment programming...these local community channels are a powerful voice for democracy.
In a time when media consolidation is rampant and many local newspapers are failing, PEG access television has taken on greater importance as a voice for, about and by the community.
We invite you to join with us here at ACT to secure and sustain PEG access television through legislative and regulatory advocacy. These channels are too valuable to just disappear!
“The advocacy work being initiated by ACT on behalf of PEG centers is important to the preservation of these valuable community channels.” George Stoney
