Help Senator Feinstein save Sesame Street!

Earlier this summer, House Republicans voted to slash NPR and PBS, starting with children's programming like "Sesame Street" and eventually eliminating all federal support. Now the Senate is striking back in support of NPR and PBS, and Senator Dianne Feinstein voted to fully fund public broadcasting.
But since the House and Senate passed different budgets, they'll have to compromise in the fall. We can strengthen Senator Feinstein's resolve by sending her thank-you notes from kids who love "Sesame Street" and other PBS shows.
You can print this NPR and PBS thank-you note, have a kid in your life draw a picture on it, then mail it to Senator Feinstein. Click here for the thank-you note: Web Link
Here's where to send it:
Senator Dianne Feinstein
2500 Tulare Street, Suite 4-290
Fresno, CA 93721
Senator Feinstein is about to head home for the August recess. This is a perfect moment to give her courage to fight for NPR and PBS with a fun thank-you note. Senators really respond to encouragement from constituents.
