Tell City Council what PhillyCAM means to you. Join our Lobby Day
Calling all supporters of PEG TV and PhillyCAM!
Join us for a City Council Lobby Day on Thu 10/26 from 11:30 - 1:00pm.
Tell City Council about the impact PEG channels, like PhillyCAM, have on shifting the narrative in the local media landscape by contributing to more diversity and stories told by and for everyday people. Share your own personal story about what PhillyCAM means to you and your community!
Why now? Because the City is negotiating a new cable franchise deal with Verizon. This has a direct impact on the PEG channels and PhillyCAM's funding!
Represent! Wear your PhillyCAM swag - t-shirts, beanies, hoodies, lapel pins, whatever you might have. We'll have swag if you don't have any!
