GREEN BAY (WLUK) -- A group of people rallied in Green Bay Monday, against proposed federal budget cuts for the Public Broadcasting Corporation.

The "Save PBS Kids!" children's march was in support of PBS and its popular children's programming.

In his budget proposal, President Donald Trump wants all federal taxpayer money eliminated for PBS.

That money, recently $445 million year, typically providers 15 to 20 percent to operate National Public Radio networks and stations.

"I think it's important because as a kid I have really great memories of the programming. I know that I learned a lot from it and now today it means so much to me as a parent, having programming for my kids that's nonviolent, commercial-free and educational," said Lindsay Dorf, member of Forward Action Wisconsin Network-Fox Valley.

Arthur, Martha Speaks, Curious George and Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood are just some to the shows featured on PBS Kids.
