A new day has dawned on Louisville’s media landscape.  At Forward Radio, we believe in moving media forward — pun intended! Our vision is to achieve this by encouraging the community to produce its own media.

We believe that everyone in our community has the ability to become citizen journalists, creating media that addresses issues both relevant and meaningful to the community and that align with FOR’s mission statement:

As an interfaith organization, FOR’s mission is to organize, train, and grow a diverse movement that welcomes all people of conscience to end structures of violence and war, and create peace through the transformative power of nonviolence.

FOR Louisville Chapter is the local branch of a global network working for peace and justice through the International Fellowship of Reconciliation (IFOR).

We believe that, if we all work together, we can build a radio station that serves the interests of all, rather than those of a powerful few.


We want Forward Radio to become a platform for dedicated and passionate voices of individuals and groups working tirelessly to make Louisville a more compassionate city.  We’re ready to help members of our community gain access to the technology and tools of media so their stories can be told and voices heard.
