Freeform Portland



To foster a welcoming and equitable space for music lovers that celebrates the unexpected, gives a voice to the underrepresented, and empowers our volunteer community.

Bottom Line for Portland

We’re providing a sound refuge from the chaos of the world. Our station is a communal jam zone where Portland residents from all cultural backgrounds and walks of life connect through the universal language of music. We're making accessibility a continued priority by working to expand our broadcasting reach, focusing on creating an accessible station, and providing broadcasting resources and opportunities to our diverse community who may not otherwise have access.


"I believe every city worldwide should have a radio/tv/internet show based on the simple principles applied at Freeform Portland"

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Equity, diversity, and inclusion work has driven everything we do as a community-powered radio station since the day we broadcast our first show in 2016, prioritizing BIPOC/LGTBQ+ DJ applications in outreach, selection and leadership roles, as well as prioritizing those with a lack of alternate opportunities of self-expression in schedule selection. As a station, we continually aim to provide better resources and opportunities for self-expression, identity exploration, participation, and connection, and a public platform for underrepresented voices in the metro area. As Portland community members, we aim to empower and advocate for the historically marginalized by providing on-air and online space for other non-profits who amplify and uplift the voices and causes of the diverse volunteer group that makes up Freeform Portland.
