Newspaper help still needed to fight tariffs
If you have editorialized against the tariffs on imported Canadian newsprint and armed your readers with information to let their representatives know how harmful these tariffs are, thank you.
Please take time to complete the survey on the tariff’s impact on your newspaper
There is still more that needs to be done, though. The News Media Alliance (NMA) is requesting that newspapers complete the survey to collect data on the impact of the tariffs on their operations. So far only one California newspaper has responded. This information is critical to the effort to defeat the tariffs. The responses will be de-identified and shared with the Secretary of Commerce and with Members of Congress who will testify at the International Trade Commission hearing on July 17.
Promote the petition calling on the ITC to reverse the tariffs
In coordination with the STOPP Coalition, the News Media Alliance has launched a petition calling on the International Trade Commission to reverse the tariffs on imported Canadian newsprint.
Please share the petition broadly with readers and run the digital and print ads promoting the petition. NMA hopes to obtain 10,000 signatures by the ITC’s scheduled hearing on the case on July 17. As of today, STOPP has gathered 8,918 signatures.
NMA has provided new digital ads promoting the petition for newspapers to run, which can be found on the STOPP Coalition website.

The July 17 hearing of the ITC is fast approaching. Please do your part to end these harmful and unnecessary tariffs.
