Hi WBAI community, we are Red Wave 2k21! We are Nicodemus Nicoludis and Dylan Saba, two NYC Democratic Socialists of America members running for WBAI’s Local Station Board to build working-class media under community control.
When elected, we will join four NYC-DSA members currently serving on the WBAI LSB. Since 2019, the Red Wave collective has been organizing and growing relationships with the long-standing WBAI community.
When out-of-state interests threatened WBAI in 2019, 2020, and 2021, Red Wave mobilized along with other groups at WBAI to fight back and retain local control of the station.
When the COVID pandemic disrupted our city, Red Wave members stepped up to move LSB meetings online and ensure station governance would continue through a world historic crisis.
Red Wave members have served on WBAI LSB committees like the Program Director Search committee and Fundraising Committee; and assisted the station in modernizing its fundraising database.
Red Wave is also organizing with other projects such as Working Class Heroes and Valley Labor Report to build networks among those producing worker-centered media.
We have always believed in the power of a community radio station broadcasting on 99.5fm in New York City and are ready to pitch in to preserve WBAI’s legacy and energize its future.
We are active socialist organizers working hard on campaigns for working-class liberation. Visit the Pacifica elections website to read more about us!
Rank us at the top of your WBAI Local Station Board ballot to build socialist power at WBAI!
P.S. You may have seen us listed on St*ve Br*wn’s recent mailer (barf). We did not authorize this and do not support Brown and his history of racist behavior toward WBAI community members. See our 2019 statement for more: https://www.facebook.com/notes/3446814602024080/
