Resistance Radio is hosted by WHIV founder MarkAlain Dery and Kenny Francis, who discuss a range of local, national, and international social justice-related current event news stories. Resistance Radio airs live on WHIV and WBOK on Mondays at 6pm. Recent guests and topics include Vincenzo Pasquantonio of the Mayor’s Office on Human Relations to discuss Human Rights Day, HIV activists to talk about U=U, and State Representative Royce Duplessis to review the notable bills that passed in the 2018 session. Once per month, Resistance Radio also hosts a version of the show called "Movement Monday" at the Ace Hotel, including a live audience taping of WHIV 102.3FM's Resistance Radio show. We feature an interview with a culturally or politically relevant guest and a post-taping happy hour for casual but purposeful discussion of the topics covered during the interview, as well as an opportunity for action spearheaded by a local community partner.
