The purpose of Outreach is to raise awareness and to educate listeners on the positive things that people, most notably people of color, are doing in the Greater Madison area every single day. People who are working every day to provide programs and activities designed to educate youth, services that promote workforce and economic development or even just to make the community a better place. These dedicated groups and individuals need to be able to tell folks where to find them and how to access what is available. Outreach will also spend time talking about the issues that are important and will invite guests that can educate the entire community.
