A team to help the SOCIAL GOOD FUND's "I Am Somebody Radio" project get off the ground!
I Am Somebody Radio will test whether it's possible to teach the basics of nonviolence to oppressed populations around the world by radio. Radio, despite being the most accessible medium inside closed societies, has to date been grossly under-used for this purpose, resulting in many victims of dictatorship who lack access to the Internet and printed materials due to censorship remaining unaware of nonviolence's potential use. The pilot project will measure and compare local understanding of, and attitudes towards, nonviolence in two closed societies before and after broadcasting a translated educational series on the subject. Proof that teaching nonviolence by radio can successfully familiarize such populations with a fundamental understanding of "how nonviolence works," increase local motivation to use nonviolence as a means of mass civic empowerment, and encourage local nonviolence leadership development will open the door to expanding the program globally.
