Voqal is excited to announce the release of its 2019 Annual Report.
As we’ve stated many times in the past, as a collective of EBS licensees, Voqal is committed to using the airwaves to benefit the public. With resources afforded by spectrum use agreements, we make grants and impact investments, expand internet access and digital equity, offer fellowships and protect the public airwaves. Voqal’s efforts focus on the education and enrichment of all, not just those who are well-off socially, economically and politically.
While some of our programs serve traditional educational entities like K-12 schools, we embrace a broader view of education and aims to ensure equal access to knowledge to foster a stronger, healthier democracy.
Furthermore, over the past year, it was clear that the United States is in a situation that demands a movement. Previous social movements, including the American Revolution, the Abolitionist Movement, the Women’s Rights Movement, the Labor Movement, the Civil Rights Movement and the Environmental Movement, demonstrate how, through collective and strategic action, we can win.
In this year’s annual report, you will read about groups, individuals and projects that are building the next movement. They have a great vision of democracy, equity, freedom, justice, peace, liberty and dignity for all. They have the strength, determination and resilience to challenge existing power structures. They are not after modest reforms but rather, seek to transform the rules of society. They understand the importance of building a base of supporters and an infrastructure before and while engaging in mass action. They have many faces, leaders and actions.
