WRFI is excited to announce a collaboration with the Community Unity Music Eduction Program at Southside Community Center (or CUMEP). “We Are CUMEP” is series of short radio diaries documenting the camp’s music, art, and social justice curriculum recorded by youth at CUMEP. The station is training campers in CUMEP's Media Major who will record the voices and sounds of the camp throughout the rest of the 2019 season.

After the students complete their daily recordings, WRFI staff edit the day's audio into a short piece to air (Tuesday through Friday from July 16 - August 1) at 6pm on WRFI’s Community Radio News. 

After each episode airs it will be available on this page for you to enjoy anytime. 

"We Are CUMEP" is the latest of WRFI’s collaborations with local community organizations and builds on previous successes partnering with the Ithaca College Park Scholars, the Ithaca Voice and others. Our mission is to air local voices. If you’re involved with a local organization that has a story to tell, please reach out to us here, we’d love to hear from you!
