CODEPINK RADIO

Tuesdays 4pm, Thursdays 8am, Saturdays 3pm

CODEPINK Radio – Robust conversation with global grassroots peacemakers, from Yemen to Venezuela to Iran to right here in the U.S.

CODEPINK is a women-led grassroots organization working to end U.S. wars and militarism, support peace and human rights initiatives, and redirect our tax dollars into healthcare, education, green jobs and other life-affirming programs.

Founded in fall 2002 as a grassroots effort to prevent the US war on Iraq, we continue to organize for justice for Iraqis, to hold war criminals accountable, and to end and prevent other U.S. wars and regime change efforts. We actively oppose U.S. sanctions on Iran, Venezuela, N. Korea, Cuba, and more, the continuing U.S. war in Afghanistan, torture, the detention center at Guantanamo, weaponized and spy drones, and the prosecution of whistle-blowers. We support Palestinian rights, diplomacy, and growing local peace economies. Our flagship campaign is Divest from the War Machine to divest from companies that derive their profits from U.S. military interventions, the global arms trade, and the militarization of our streets.

Dear Friends – Thank you for your support of CommUNITY Radio KNSJ and Activist San Diego! This is the last day to make a 2022 Tax-Deductible Donation

LOCAL AND INDEPENDENT MEDIA IS OUR STRENGTH

As we approach the end of another year in America, one thing is clear. We’re grappling with a lot. Democracy is in peril. Gun violence, antisemitism, racially-motivated hate crimes, and the wealth-gap are all on the rise.  The rampant spread of misinformation throughout our increasingly corporatized digital media platforms, means that now more than ever, independent media is critical to the democratic discussion. This is why KNSJ matters.

In our nine years on the air, KNSJ has featured live debates between candidates for City Council and the Mayor’s office, live productions from rallies for climate action, labor rights, civil rights, the PRIDE parade, and the Women’s March. We have more science and environment-based programs than all the other stations in San Diego County combined.

The service we provide to our listeners doesn’t stop at our Public Affairs programming. KNSJ is continuing to develop the best independent music programming schedule you’ll find in the entire county. Night in and night out, listeners who tune to 89.1 FM or stream online at knsj.org will hear an incredibly eclectic array of music that will not be found on any of the corporately-monopolized stations that dominate the airwaves.

In 2023, KNSJ hopes to relocate to a bigger and better studio, strengthen our terrestrial signal, continue to expand our locally-produced programming schedule, and strengthen our ties to the community through live-music events and youth-based radio-production opportunities.

This holiday season, we hope that you will consider contributing to the cause of Social Justice community radio in San Diego County by becoming a member of KNSJ. Your tax-deductible donation will not only help KNSJ accomplish our goals, but will also help to counteract the dangerous spread of misinformation throughout the digital landscape with the type of truth-telling that only independent media can provide. We thank you for your continued support and wish you a happy New Year,
Your friends at KNSJ

Medea Benjamin is the co-founder of the women-led peace group CODEPINK. She is also co-founder of the human rights group Global Exchange, the Peace in Ukraine Coalition, Unfreeze Afghanistan (which advocates for returning the $7 billion of Afghan funds frozen in U.S. banks), ACERE: The Alliance for Cuba Engagement and Respect, and the Nobel Peace Prize for Cuban Doctors Campaign.

Medea has been an advocate for social justice for 50 years.

She is the author of ten books, including Drone Warfare: Killing by Remote Control, Kingdom of the Unjust: Behind the U.S.-Saudi Connection, and Inside Iran: The Real History and Politics of the Islamic Republic of Iran. Her most recent book, coauthored with Nicolas J.S. Davies, is War in Ukraine: Making Sense of a Senseless Conflict.

GIVING TUESDAY–SUPPORT KNSJ INDEPENDENT PUBLIC COMMUNITY RADIO

Friends,
