BRIC Stands With Our Black Community

A Letter From Our President:

In this moment of profound reckoning for our country, I'm stunned by having witnessed so brazenly the ongoing consequences of whiteness being weaponized against Black bodies. I grieve for the Black lives taken from us: George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and many others.

If You Want Good...Equity in Community Media

Tuesday, September 8, 2020 - 10:30AM

Now, in a time when we are ALL mourning the destruction of black bodies on camera, there is something new in the air that is different. I believe that we are converging on a hopeful time when we can talk about equity with depth that has previously been too painful or too difficult. Now we must prepare ourselves for the difficult conversations, and the unusual efforts to make equity in community media more than a pursuit, we must make unusual efforts to actually be equitable. “If you waan good you nose haffi run”
