State Legislative Initiative
In 2014, I successfully advocated to place a policy question on the state ballot in the 7th Suffolk District calling increased access to community radio in under served communities--Question No 5.
My vision and efforts, along with the assistance of our community members, organizations, and business owners garnered the 8,000 signatures required. The measure was voted upon favorably by 87% of the voters.
This was a major victory for the various ethnic communities--a measure that was led and fueled by the Black Community in an effort to show support for the only black owned and operated community radio station in Boston that was denied a license for the eight years it was on the local LP dial at LP-WTCH-Boston, TOUCH 106.1FM.
