Launched in 2012 from its broadcast studio in Ithaca, WRFI is a community-owned and operated radio station serving Tompkins and Schuyler Counties.  The station aims to cultivate and promote programs that share local and underrepresented perspectives and that reflect six core values:  peace, justice, sustainability, freedom of expression/cultural diversity, integrity, and joy.  As an organization primarily powered by volunteers, the station is also committed to training community members in the craft of radio, and its training has spurred several people into professional radio careers.
