Join the Organizing Cooperative: Radio-Active


After years of damaging attacks on our state, one thing is clear: We must develop and support new, bold ideas if we are to change the direction of our state.

Our idea is simple: Grow our member-owned Organizing Cooperative to fund a professional organizer who will work full time, year round to coordinate a grass-roots campaign to challenge the most toxic influence on state politics and Wisconsin elections: Conservative Talk Radio

Every day in Southeastern Wisconsin, five right-wing radio hosts spew divisive rhetoric on our most powerful AM stations. Our mission is to break the ultra-conservative media monopoly and restore a true marketplace of ideas on our public airwaves, and we call our campaign "Radio-Active." 

Radio-Active cannot happen without YOU. In order to make this member-funded Co-op campaign possible, we must find 250 people in the region to pledge small monthly contributions averaging $20/month to "own" this campaign. If we don't find 250+ people who believe in this idea and pledge, we won't go through with our Radio-Active campaign. But if we do, together we will change the media landscape in Milwaukee and restore a diversity of views on our airwaves.

This is YOUR Organizing Cooperative. You own it. You direct it. Our member-owned Milwaukee Co-op launched this campaign to change politics as usual. Pledge today and let us know: What do you want to change in Wisconsin and in your community?

For more information, check out our Organizing Cooperative Frequently Asked Questions page (opens in a new page). Contributions made can be tax deductible. After filling out the info below and clicking "pledge", look for the "tax deductible" link on the page that follows.

    I am joining because my brother, Doug Perry made me do it. NOT REALLY! I’m originally from Milwaukee and now live in the DC area and have learned to enjoy an independent radio station that addresses issues with the poor, the under served, and under represented in the media. Milwaukee needs a station like that for sure. The station I listen to in DC is WPFW. C’mon, Milwaukee! Get it together! You have my support.
