Prometheus Radio Project is a Philadelphia based, national non-profit organization founded by a small group of radio activists in 1998. Prometheus builds, supports, and advocates for community radio stations which empower participatory community voices and movements for social change. To that end, we demystify technologies, the political process that governs access to our media system, and the effects of media on our lives and our communities.
Our primary focus is on building a large community of Low Power FM stations and listeners nationwide. We hope this community will grow into a powerful force working toward the democratic media future we envision. Toward that end, we support community groups at every stage of the process of building community radio stations, facilitate public participation in the FCC regulatory process, and sponsor events promoting awareness and support of media democracy and Low Power FM radio.
We invite you to join our group, come to our community events and learn more about this exciting moment for community radio in Philadelphia!
