Grassroots Radio Conference— GRC-13: Call for proposals

The Grassroots Radio Conference is being held in Portland, OR, July 25 - 27th, at the Native American Student and Community Center, at Portland State University. The Grassroots Radio Conference is an annual gathering of community radio activists in support of this mission:
