Human Rights + Social Justice Radio: WHIV FM

If you are looking for a radio station that is dedicated to human rights and social justice issues, consider dialing into WHIV FM! Dr. MarkAlain Dery and Liana Elliott are co-founders of WHIV, which features more than 70 hosts and DJs, broadcasting over 12 hours of daily and original content throughout New Orleans, and streaming online in all 50 states and 85 countries worldwide.

FM 102.3 WHIV-LP is a program of The New Orleans Society for Infectious Disease Awareness (NOSIDA), which was established in 2009 by local activist and infectious diseases physician Dr. MarkAlain Dery. NOSIDA's focus is to raise awareness about HIV and other infectious diseases through music. Such illnesses are completely preventable, yet disproportionately affect disadvantaged and marginalized populations. NOSIDA received its non-profit status in 2010.

Expanding its impact locally, NOSIDA was awarded an FCC license for a lower power (100 watt) FM community radio station in 2014. On World AIDS Day 2014, 102.3FM WHIV-LP was officially launched, featuring local music, protest songs, and programming dedicated to human rights and social justice.

Dalmas A. Taylor Memorial Summer Minority Fellowship

Spend the SummEr in DC with SPSSI & the APA

We wanted to bring attention to an opportunity that landed in our inbox. Please review this opportunity for yourself or for a graduate student.

The purpose of the Dalmas A. Taylor Memorial Summer Minority Fellowship is to honor the memory of Dalmas A. Taylor, who passed away during his term as President of The Society for the Psychological Study of Social Issues (SPSSI). Dr. Taylor has been involved for many years with SPSSI. In addition, he was instrumental in establishing the Minority Fellowship at the American Psychological Association and in increasing the APA's attention to inclusion of people of color. This fellowship is administered in conjunction with APA and its Minority Fellowship Program. It provides an opportunity for a graduate student of color to work on public policy issues in Washington, D.C.
