Emergency Communications Guidebook (ECG)
During emergencies, stations are the first responders for their tribal communities, providing critical
updates and news. Our ECG was created to develop and increase disaster literacy of stations.
First Amendment Protectors Project
This series of curricula and training will address emerging social, political, and cultural impacts to First Amendment rights, and how to protect and defend the sovereignty of Tribal communities.
This training will offer stations the basics of underwriting that can increase station revenue in compliance with the Federal Communications Commission rules and regulations.
