Twitter Name: @RiseUpRadioNYC
Rise Up Radio (formerly Student Voices For Peace) is a collective radio show by and for youth activists.
The collective understands peace not only as the absence of war, but also as the absence of the rule of war. We use the airwaves to report on and galvanize opposition not only to the wars being fought in our name around the world, but also to the domestic war being waged on youth,especially young people of color and low-income youth. Rise Up Radio is a collaboration between young activists and our older allies in the Pacifica radio network seeking to inspire fellow youth, to provide context for the issues and events covering social justice issues. Join us in our efforts to bring light to these vital and often unreported movements for social change as we redefine and expand visions of a more just world and the role of youth activism in creating it.
