Washington Dc, United States
Radio CPR was founded by a group of residents of Mount Pleasant and Columbia Heights to provide an outlet for the voices, stories, music and opinions that so often get excluded from mainstream forums of communication. CPR opens a space that resists corporate control of the airwaves. We also provide the opportunity for more residents to participate in discussions about the issues that impact their city and their neighborhoods.
We strive to involve a broad cross-section of the community that falls into our listening range in creating programming and airing voices. Radio CPR gives priority to those who most lack access to the means of media production and who are most underserved and underrepresented by mainstream forms of communication. Radio CPR is not only a place to hear and to express views not heard anywhere else: it is a tool we can use to challenge oppression from the scale of the neighborhood to the globe.
