This Radio Station Is Giving A Voice To Refugees

Berlin Community Radio is an integral part of the city’s musical infrastructure, giving a voice to many underground and rising musicians, producers and DJs. Now the DIY station is hosting a fellow radio initiative showcasing those who really need to be heard right now.

Today BCR host the first radio show for Hamburg’s Refugee Radio Network to introduce the founder of the project, which seeks to give a platform for migrants, asylum seekers and refugees to share their stories—to make the invisible visible. At a time when awareness toward the world’s treatment of those in need is more focused than ever, it’s important that we remember that “refugee” is not just a word or a hashtag, but the status of real human beings. If you want to hear their stories and find out what more you can do to help, tune in via their website at 2PM CET.
