News

The recent trag­ic events that have tak­en place around the world such as the mur­ders of George Floyd, Bre­on­na Tay­lor, Reg­is Korchin­s­ki-Paquet and so many oth­ers, as well as the ongo­ing vio­lence against Black and Indige­nous Peo­ple in our own com­mu­ni­ty has giv­en us pause. 

We have tak­en this past week to ini­ti­ate a process of ongo­ing reflec­tion of our core prin­ci­ples, val­ues, and are devel­op­ing a plan for how UMFM can increase diver­si­ty and inclu­siv­i­ty with­in our orga­ni­za­tion, now and mov­ing for­ward. UMFM is com­mit­ted to tak­ing the nec­es­sary steps to being an anti-racist orga­ni­za­tion and we are in full sup­port of the Black Lives Mat­ter move­ment. Black. Lives. Matter. 

We are com­mit­ted to pro­vid­ing a safer, more acces­si­ble space for the cre­ative tal­ents and voic­es of Peo­ple of Colour on UMFM’s airwaves.

We encour­age our lis­ten­ers and sup­port­ers to check out some of the fol­low­ing orga­ni­za­tions who are doing real­ly impor­tant work local­ly, nation­al­ly and in the US and could use your finan­cial sup­port. While we have con­tributed to some of them, we real­ize that we are only scratch­ing the sur­face here and cer­tain­ly will be con­tin­u­ing do more research and encour­age you to do so as well.
