We want fully funded and community-owned media that support democratic engagement, connect local communities, and strengthen local economies.
Thanks to the Local Community Radio Act thousands of new radio stations may hit the airwaves very soon. Members of the Media Action Grassroots Network like Under the Hood Cafe, Waite House, and Peoples Press Project are working to build radio stations to fight racist stereotypes and create media more reflective of the communities they live in. Find out how you can support local radio, where-ever you live.

This can serve as a model for other communities working on building out broadband systems. Please watch and share this video!
