Community Voz

Community Voz

Community Voz is C2C's ecofeminist radio show which presents the grassroots work that local people are doing across intersecting movements. Our radio shows are engaging conversations about issues and news you probably won't hear anywhere else. We believe in community radio and alternative media, which highlights the character, beauty and courage of the voices of people on the ground. Tune in for reflections and report backs from C2C organizers and allies on the frontlines of the struggle for farmworker justice. We are extremely grateful to the talents being volunteered by Carrie Lewis, Ry Feder Pruett, and Liz Darrow, who do all of the recording and engineering, as well as KMRE, our local non profit public radio station. You can access archived episodes (soon to be added to the podcast) at http://www.foodjustice.org/community-voz-radio
