Earlier this week we participated in Black Out Tuesday, an initiative started in the music industry, by playing the music of only Black artists all day. It was a statement of solidarity, advocating for a more just and inclusive community.
Inclusivity is woven into the fabric of what we do at Radio Milwaukee, as you can see in the image of our mission statement above. It’s our “why.” And it’s why we’ll keep standing and keep informing.
We recognize the responsibility of having a microphone, radio signal, website and social following right now. We intend to use these assets to inform our community about what’s happening around them and ways to get involved.
However, the world we are living in right now demands more action than informing our community. We are working through that as an organization as we speak.
We are listening. We are organizing. And we will continue standing against hate.
Thank you for being a part of the Radio Milwaukee family, and engaging in our mission of working toward a more inclusive Milwaukee.
