TAY Radio Marin

Amplifying Youth Voices.

Media can be a powerful tool for influence and social change. Never is that more apparent than in today’s media landscape where information meets us from every angle. Media shapes our thoughts and opinions about social issues and serves as a conduit to broader public discourse. Oftentimes, whoever has the microphone has the ability to impart knowledge and sway public opinion.

At the Multicultural Center of Marin, we believe that it is critical that all people participate in shaping the voice of media, especially our young people. Transitional age youth, those between ages 13 to 23, are at a critical time in their development to adulthood. They see the world from unique perspectives and have experiences that are important to share with our wider community.

That’s why we created TAY Radio (short for “Transitional Age Youth”). This broadcast media experience, transmitted weekly via FM radio and Facebook Live, lets young people learn the art of media while also talking about the issues that are important to them. Through TAY Radio, youth are bringing their concerns to the forefront of the community and influencing public policy through their on-air discussions and interviews.

Dia de los Muertos

Day of the Dead annual cultural festival

For 32 years, the traditions of Día de Los Muertos — Day of the Dead — have been honored and celebrated by community members of San Rafael and beyond. The celebration comes from the ancient wisdom of the indigenous people of Meso and South America. Through the years it has been open to many spiritual influences of this ever-developing world and changing universe we live in.

The multicultural community of the Canal Neighborhood hosts an annual Día de Los Muertos celebration and welcomes residents and visitors to San Rafael to share in a grateful acknowledgment of the continuing ebb and flow of existence. The Multicultural Center of Marin is a co-organizer of the event and contributes to the goal of honoring the cultural assets of immigrant communities and sharing the cultural legacy of Latin American cultures with Marin residents.
