CIVL Hosts the 14th Annual Homelessness Marathon

Abbotsford (January 26, 2016) – Abbotsford’s CIVL 101.7 FM, is the coordinating station responsible for this year’s installment of the collaborative project among National Campus and Community Radio Stations in Canada, called the 14th Annual Homelessness Marathon.

Homelessness Marathon poster draft 3

Hosted for 11 years by McGill University’s CKUT-FM in Montreal​, the marathon has been coordinated by U of Alberta’s CJSR in Edmonton ​and Queens University in Kingston’s CFRC ​over the past two years, making this the first time the marathon has been coordinated by a station in British Columbia.

The broadcast will last 14 hours, starting on Tuesday, February 23rd at 2 pm (PST)​, and lasting until Wendesday, February 24th at 4 am (PST)​. Regular CIVL programming will be pre-empted for the entirety of the broadcast, airing instead public forums, pre-recorded stories, and other content provided by each of the stations mentioned above, as well as CJSF Burnaby from SFU​, CiTR at UBC​, CFRU at the U of Guelph​, CHRW from Western​in London, ON, and CKDU at Dalhousie ​in Halifax.

Each year, dozens of stations participate in producing accessible content from volunteers, staff, community groups, and concerned local citizens, in order to address issues of homelessness, poverty, and the associated stigmas that haunt people who struggle to make ends meat every day. To date, the broadcast is confirmed to air on stations in BC​, Alberta​, Saskatchewan​, Ontario​, Quebec​, NB​, and NS​.

Overall, 22 stations have already signed on to broadcast all or parts of the Marathon, and more are signing on every day! CIVL will be taking calls live on the toll free hotline for any listeners to chime in with their thoughts or experiences.

CIVL has broadcast parts of the marathon each of the past 5 years, contributing content 3 times, including a 30 minute live broadcast with 5 and 2 Ministries’ Ward Draper one week before Abbotsford City Council made the ultimate decision to forego the supportive housing project which was hotly debated in 2014. In 2015, CIVL submitted a 45 minute live recording of WJ Mouat Secondary’s 12th Grade drama production, commissioned by Character Abbotsford, answering the question “What can be done to eliminate homelessness in Abbotsford?”

Live forums will be set up in Vancouver, Burnaby, Kingston, and Montreal, featuring open mics and public forums so those most affected can participate and have their voices heard.

These funds were made available under the CRFC’s Radiometres program, a program that aims to improve local programming, volunteer training and community members’ participation. It’s not the first time we’ve received funding from the CRFC; a total of $115,177 has been awarded to CIVL over the past five years. All of this money has been dedicated towards personnel being funded to work on coordinating volunteers and station resources in order to best develop CIVL’s overall operations and sustainability through programming, promotion, and academic research and engagement. Nearly $10,000 of this grant will be dedicated to the operation and promotion of the FVMA event itself, over and above the hiring of a full time employee to tackle this exciting initiative for the next year.

In November, Williams officially became a part of the team at The Hawk 89.5 FM in Chilliwack as a weekend news personality.

She also served as CIVL’s Program Assistant, Music Librarian, and Promotions Coordinator before trying her hand at news for the first time earlier in November. NCRA Executive Director, Shelley Robinson, says “It’s amazing to see someone’s passion for radio get recognized by both a local community and commercial station, and have a chance to reach even more listeners.”

Included among Williams’ other accomplishments at CIVL are her experience as Chair of the Programming Committee, responsible for approving new programs and reviewing concurrent content.

She also participated in CIVL’s national news broadcast of Groundwire, an NCRA project that reaches 30-40 stations across the country every other week. “We are glad to see a dedicated volunteer recognized in the job market,” says CIVL President Dustin Ellis. “Creating broadcast skills and experience is a big part of what we do, and Alicia has helped make this possible for others while making the most of our organization.” Despite the new job, Alicia will read daily news on CIVL at least until the end of this semester.

RE: CIVL Radio Campaign Focus Group
nike air jordan 6
As you may already know, CIVL Radio will be holding a referendum to increase student fees at the end of March. Our previous campaign and referendum in December was unsuccessful by only 66 out of 854 votes (a margin of 7%). We realize that our posters and advertising for the referendum is in need of improvement. With that in mind, we hope to improve our campaign strategy and hold a successful second referendum.

With an increased budget, CIVL Radio will be able to provide better services for students including:

- Hire more staff members

- Provide incentives for volunteers and students

- Host more events on campus and in the community

- Sponsor community projects/ non-profit organizations

- Invest in new technology and maintain our current equipment

- Fund a new tower with range from Cloverdale to Hope

- Hold more contests and give away prizes

- Create a richer environment on campus and more experiences for students

We will be hosting an open campaign meeting on February 22th at 4:30 pm to generate support for our referendum and to hear any feedback and suggestions. We will meet at CIVL Radio and proceed to a meeting room.
