Want to participate in reshaping the landscape of radio?
Want to help bring Democracy Now! to Memphis?
A ten-year-long collective grassroots effort to open the airwaves to community radio stations achieved victory on January 7, 2011, when President Obama signed into law the Local Community Radio Act, which will allow Low-Power FM (LPFM) stations to flourish.
LPFM stations are small, community-based FM radio stations that are run by non-profits, such as colleges, churches, schools, labor unions, and other community groups. These non-commercial stations are ideally positioned to meet local needs by giving a voice to local groups and people who otherwise lack access to media outlets, providing a platform for discussing local issues, presenting news and viewpoints often ignored by media, and creating diversity on the air through the representation of minorities.
The Mid-South Peace & Justice Center would like to invite you to a meeting to discuss the creation of a low-power, non-commercial community radio station for the greater Memphis area.
Date: September 1, 2011
Time: 6:00 pm
Location: Mid-South Peace & Justice Center, located at 1000 S. Cooper St.
