Become a PTC Volunteer
The Los Angeles office of the Parents Television Council is seeking volunteers to aid in its mission of protecting children against sex, violence and profanity in entertainment. Scientific studies have shown that children can be negatively affected by violent or sexual program content. The PTC is an organization of concerned citizens who strive to encourage responsible behavior by the entertainment industry, with a special emphasis on television programming.
Volunteers will aid the PTC by contacting corporations that sponsor offensive programming, writing letters, and performing light clerical duties. This is a wonderful opportunity for students seeking to fulfill required school volunteer hours, homemakers or retirees with free time, or anyone concerned about the state of entertainment today.
The PTC’s headquarters are located in downtown Los Angeles. If you are not
located in Southern California but would like to take part in the PTC’s
mission,please email Grassroots@parentstv.org or call 1-800-TV-COUNTS for more information.
