KZUM was part of a national conversation with dozens of other community radio stations, facilitated by the National Federation of Community Broadcasters. The goal was to seek out roadblocks, create support and define a path toward a more equitable industry.

On July 16, 2020, the KZUM Board of Directors unanimously voted to join this important cohort.
