What is Radio Rootz?

Since 2001, Radio Rootz is a youth media-training program that focuses on skill building in radio production, media literacy, and media activism. Radio Rootz is a partnership between New York City public schools, community organizing groups, and Pacifica community radio (which includes WBAI 99.5 FM) We help young and marginalized New Yorkers to find their voice and make it heard.

Radio Rootz recognizes the importance of giving young folks the political background to understand issues of representation, public policy and the big money interests behind both, while making available the tools so young people can respond, react and create their own media. After
learning basic media literacy and media making skills, the project hopes participants will be encouraged to become both journalists and media organizers to sculpt the power of the media in their favor.
