UCC Media Justice Update

Social Justice Radio Webinar May 22, 2013

Social justice is often about working with allies, spreading information, and bearing witness to stories that no one else hears. People of faith are known for our involvement in our communities--as a powerful force for justice, compassion and the common good.  And yet, all too often, the progressive faith community is not reflected in the media.

 

We now have a rare  opportunity to take charge and change the conversation. 

 

Thanks to a recent legislative victory, nonprofits, schools, churches, and labor unions will soon have a one-time chance to apply for thousands of new FM community radio licenses nationwide. The deadline to apply for these free low-power FM radio licenses is October 2013.  We have much to do before then—both to assist community groups  that are already working to obtain radio licenses and to develop faith-oriented radio stations ourselves.
