Radio Free Georgia (WRFG 89.3 FM)

WRFG Atlanta 89.3FM. Radio Free Georgia. One of our best sources for local progressive media. My participation as a listener and volunteer with the station has been fundamental in my political education and community activism. In its 45 years, WRFG has and continues to broadcast the voices and information of those who experience oppression and exploitation and those who resist it. - Christopher Hollis

People Making a Difference

Jon Ossoff
Atlanta has been a hotbed of resistance ... We have a long history of it with MLK and John Lewis and others … Jon Ossoff carried that tradition and lit a spark that created an electric atmosphere. The people that supported Jon are now like a thousand Ossoff's. He was very punk rock. He ran against all odds, with the attitude, "You can do this yourself!" To me it was the same feeling as starting a band, you figure it out the hard way as you go. I was already protesting before I met Ossoff. They came to me for help when they found out I lived in the 6th District. But I just run ideas by people and say, “Is this fucked up?” If they agree, we just decide to do something about it. Protest, petition, register voters, canvass, do a benefit show, drive people to the polls — whatever needs to happen, we do it. - Ray Dafrico

Gerald A. Griggs: We must look to the leaders of the last movement like John Lewis, C.T. Vivian, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Rev. Gerald Durley, Rev. Joseph Lowery, Dr. Bernard Lafayette, and many others for guidance. As history seems to be repeating itself, we must apply the lessons of the past with ingenuity using the tools of today. We must also collaborate with the leaders of today like Janel Green, Mary Hooks, Tiffany Williams Roberts, Rev. Kevin Muriel, Rev. Raphael Warnock, Kenyette Barnes, Mawuli Davis, L. Chris Stewart and many others to bend the arc of history toward the justice our elders saw.
