Action Alert: House votes to defund NPR

Yesterday, House Republicans passed an "emergency" bill that would ban any federal money from going to NPR.
This is it: our last chance to save public broadcasting, after more than a decade of fending off Republican attacks. More than 600,000 people have already signed the petition, and we're aiming for 750,000 to show the Senate how much support public broadcasting has.
Can you help us reach our goal by sharing the petition on Facebook right now?

Thanks for all you do.

–Daniel, Amy, Adam, Wes, and the rest of the team

P.S. You can also just forward the email below asking people to sign:

The Republicans in the House of Representatives just passed what they called "emergency" legislation to zero out funding for NPR. We're on the verge of losing this fight, after more than a decade.

We need to tell Republicans that cutting off funding was unacceptable last time they were in charge, and it's unacceptable now.
I've signed the petition to save NPR and PBS. Can you join me at the link below?
