A Note From the Director

For many years, I have lived and breathed my purpose here: what services we offer, how they work to serve the community, and how to tweak and refine them when necessary. It’s been my personal mission to anchor Davis Media Access deeply in this community, providing services that meet a wide variety of needs. With an incredible team comprising board, staff, volunteers, partners, and community supporters, I know we’ve been successful.


Just as we meet needs, though, we also have them. Right now, DMA is in the thick of its annual fundraising, with a must-meet goal of $25,000 by June 1. This annual campaign is what provides the money to keep KDRT-LP 95.7 FM on the air. It also allows DMA devote resources to local elections and youth-media efforts. It facilitates media and technology training in a myriad of ways.

We participated in the Big Day of Giving, and our experience on May 5 was incredible! In one day, we met close to half our annual goal. I give a big shout-out here to our many donors—many of them first-time donors to DMA—and to Jessica Kelly, who submitted the very first donation of the Big Day, netting DMA a $5,000 prize. We had a wonderful event downtown at The Wardrobe in which we made many new friends. But the Big Day is just part of the picture. We do this work every day of the year, and have done so for nearly 26 years, and right now, we need your support.


We are still quite a ways out from our goal. If you have already donated, I thank you.  If you watch, listen, participate or just appreciate our locally based democratic media, and haven't yet donated, now is the time. You can donate online, or mail a check made out to Davis Media Access, 1623 Fifth Street, Ste A, Davis, CA 95616.

DMA’s services and programs are made possible by community support. From the bottom of my community-loving heart, thank you!
