Thank you for supporting Radio Bilingüe, the Latino Public Radio Network!
With stations and affiliates from the San Joaquin Valley to the Rio Grande Valley and beyond, Radio Bilingüe’s mission is to serve as a voice to empower Latinos and other under-served communities.
This year Radio Bilingüe continued its legacy as a trusted on-air “meeting ground” for thousands of low income and mixed immigration status families across the country - our core audience. As the presidential campaign stirred threats and violence against immigrants, Latinos, and people of color, Radio Bilingue provided daily news, context, and platforms for dialogue. Now with our audience in a state of emergency anticipating crackdowns on immigrant families and communities, Radio Bilingüe is on-air, separating fact from fiction, helping people avoid immigration frauds and scams, and amplifying the voices of the most marginalized while connecting them to advocates and policy makers.
Radio Bilingüe does this work 24/7 through programs like Línea Abierta, the first and only national weekday Spanish news talk program in public media, and La Hora Mixteca, connecting migrant Mexican indigenous families across the U.S. and Mexico. Music lovers are also a top priority for Radio Bilingue, as we present vibrant and diverse daily offerings from Mariachi to Tex Mex to Alt Latino and Latin Jazz- always mixed with messages in Spanish, English, Mixteco, Triqui and Hawaiian, promoting community education, civic engagement, health and well-being. Our youth training and programing bring the voices and concerns of new generations from our barrios to our airwaves.
In Radio Bilingue’s home state of California this year, we were proud to complete the decades-long dream of launching new low-cost-repeater signals bringing Radio Bilingue to additional marginalized low-income Latino communities previously unserved by public media in their language. We also assisted ally Latino cultural organizations around California to found their own low-power radio stations to promote the arts and community empowerment locally.
With the support of people like you, Radio Bilingüe will continue raising up the lives, voices and beloved cultural traditions of Latinos. We will keep building bridges across communities and cultures around the nation. Radio Bilingüe’s staff and resources are modest, but our mission is non-negotiable in this unprecedented era in U.S. life.
