The Million Puppet March Motto
We believe in public media. We believe that a strong public broadcasting system builds a stronger nation. And we believe that it is essential to provide adequate federal funding to our public broadcasters.
Through federal financial support, we the people of this great nation demonstrate our commitment to providing all Americans, regardless of their location or economic situation, free access to the best quality educational and cultural programming available anywhere, improving learning outcomes, increasing cultural awareness, and informing our electorate.
Through community events and social media, Million Puppet March seeks to increase awareness of the importance of federal funding to our public broadcasting system and to promote broad based support for its continuation.
The puppet protest, which is set to go down Nov. 3 at the National Mall in Washington, D.C., is being held in an effort to save Big Bird and the rest of the gang from losing federal funding.
