Hi, you’ve reached the WBAI FightBack information line. We are independent of WBAI.
There’s a very important vote coming up – another referendum that would dramatically change the Pacifica by-laws which govern the organization. It would eliminate community control of the stations and Pacifica network and replace it with a centralized system. The people promoting this referendum, “New Day Pacifica” are linked to the October 2019 shut down of WBAI and sponsored the previous referendom Some of their prominent supporters have called for the sale of WBAI. There is a NEED for you to update your membership so you can take action and THEN Please vote NO.
You need to have given $25 in the 12 months before April 7, 2021. If you are not sure if you donated in the last year, please err on the side of caution and send in a $25 membership. Because Pacifica elections are mostly done through email ballots, you need to provide the membership department with your email address. If you do not have an email leave a message at 917-781-0366 and we will do our best to help. Please renew your membership at www.give2wbai.org or call 516-620-3602. You will be able to find out more information on wbaifightback.org, or by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The decision to vote no or yes is yours to make, but know that the future of listener-supported radio WBAI depends on it. And depends on your becoming a member and then voting NO.
WBAI Fight Back is a volunteer organization of listeners and producers so we might not be able to return your messages as quickly as desired, but we do our best to accomodate. Please give your name, number and email address slowly and clearly.
Thank you so much for your support!!!
