George Floyd and so many others should still be alive.
Black people have been abused, silenced, enslaved, and senselessly murdered for over 400 years in this country and enough is enough. NoCo FM stands with our Black brothers and sisters, as well as all marginalized people because we understand that no one is free while others are oppressed.
As a NoCo family, we're putting our money where our mouth is and donating to the cause. If you can, you should too. Some groups that need your help are below. If you can't, spread the word. Stand up against injustice. Do your part.
We're also redoubling our efforts to amplify Black voices and to use our platform to fight injustice. We pledge to be the best allies we possibly can and to listen and learn to become better people. No one should have to fight for their basic humanity. Together, we will make a difference.
