How do we build an economy that's green AND fair?

From the White House to City Hall, everyone's talking about making the transition to a new green economy. But how do we make sure this new economy doesn't perpetuate the disparities of the old one? Can we make the shift without making things even worse for those already struggling with economic and environmental injustice? How can we ensure that all communities benefit from this transition?

Get Involved with KBOO's Spring Membership Drive

Categories:

Spring is in the air, and it’s time to get involved with your community radio station’s Spring Membership Drive! We are currently preparing for our drive runs on air from Friday, May 1st through Saturday, May 16th.

KBOO’s existence depends on membership drives as more than 80% of our funding comes from our listeners--this is, in part, what allows KBOO to be so independent and unique. We ask that all volunteers at KBOO help with the drive, as we have more than 600 shifts to fill! With shifts available seven days a week, generally spanning the hours of 6 AM to 11 PM, there are shifts to fit anyone’s schedule!

This is a fabulous time to get involved in KBOO because the drive is a very high energy time, with volunteers working closely together in teams to raise much needed money for the station. It is really fun to schedule a shift during a time that you listen, as then you can meet the volunteers that you hear on the radio and talk with others that share your interests. We need volunteers for many roles—before the drive we need volunteers to help solicit restaurant donations (we have many restaurants that donate food to keep volunteers happy!), and recruit and schedule other volunteers to help out. During the drive we have many, many roles for you to get involved with: answering phones & assisting our listeners to become members; getting on mic and talking with the program host to encourage listeners to join KBOO; running errands to pick up food donations; data entry / filing support work, and a few other things to boot.

                  There are words that are so happy to be said
                  they arch their backs, grow legs,
                      and their eyes flash green....                               B.L.

domestic & dating violence

for the Old Mole Variety Hour March 30, 2009

If there's one good thing about the publicity surrounding pop singer Chris Brown's arrest on felony assault charges for an incident that left pop singer Rihanna with visible injuries, it’s that it's raised awareness about violence in intimate relationships, and especially dating violence among young people.
