We bring you vital information underserved or ignored by mainstream media. We are supported by listeners who share our mission.

Thanks to all our supporters!

For our show on April 22nd, host Richard Mabion and Rich Gutowski speak with Kathryn Persley, President of the Heart of the City Neighborhood Association, the Dunbar-Leeds neighborhood.  The Dunbar neighborhood is home to the Blue River and also home to the Ford Leeds plant, which historically caused contamination of the Blue River.  The Heart of the City Neighborhood Association feels a responsibility to the community rooted in the belief that we all have an inherent responsibility to make a meaningful difference in our community.

With a variety of active projects, trusted partners and volunteer staff, EVERY NEIGHBORHOOD will have skills and resources to harness in order to successfully achieve their goals.

It is incredible how one small idea can grow into something truly special. Our show will also hear from Emily Miller, Senior Environmental Planner, and Natalie Unruh, Water Quality Planner, both in the Transportation and Environment Department at Mid-America Regional Council (MARC).

MARC’s Environment department develops policies, processes and projects that help keep the region’s air and water clean, reduces the amount of waste sent to landfills, restores green infrastructure and advances climate resilience.

This hour will be about forming a neighborhood think tank.

EcoRadio KC is glad to encourage awareness and protection of our world.  Our goal is to ensure our listeners are aware of how we can create a sustainable present for a sustainable future! We support the work for a future in which humans flourish in a thriving ecosphere. We are all in this together and it will take all of us to make the world safe for human habitation for millennia to come.

This will be a great radio hour!

“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can about the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.”    Margaret Mead
