Our offices and studios may be closed, but we're as committed as ever to keeping the doors open to local democracy!

CCTV has changed the face of local media for more than three decades. With your support of these three initiatives, we'll continue to thrive:

  • Advocacy - CCTV is working on local, state, and federal levels to protect community media and open networks. With your help, we can continue to bring our experience to the fight for free speech and public access TV. 

  • Media Education -  CCTV and Channel 17/Town Meeting TV educate students of all ages to tell compelling stories and think more critically about how the media and the world works. Support our community youth to learn media production and literacy skills through summer camps, internships and hands-on TV making workshops for middle school, high school, and college students.

  • Community Archives - Since CCTV’s inception in 1984, we’ve cataloged a treasure trove of stories about and by our community. From Bernie’s years as Burlington Mayor to today’s urgent messages about the opioid crisis, we house one of the largest media libraries in the state. Help us to preserve -- and improve access to -- this unique insight into our shared history.

Your support will make a difference as we shelter in place and do our part to create stronger -- and healthier -- communities!
