About the VOME

This project is aimed at giving the forgotten Voices of the Middle East a chance to be heard at least in Oregon, Southwest Washington and Portland, the city dubbed as "Little Beirut".

KBOO 90.7FM is a progressive community radio in Portland, OR. which values minorities and tries to be the voice of the voiceless. I am an Iranian-American and have been involved with Middle Eastern community, Peace and Justice, and Human Rights movements since I arrived here. I am a secular person as is this program, but all voices are welcome as long as they are in the spirit of peace and justice.

This program started shortly after the September 11, 2001 and have aired every second Friday of the month since.
