Rhode Island native and award-winning journalist and television personality Dr. Remi Jones has announced the launch of Remi TV Nation, a non-profit organization focused on media, community outreach, and service projects. Remi TV Nation aims to better the community by providing equity and uplifting voices in the media through mentoring, tutoring, networking, and more.
Remi TV Nation offers a variety of programs and initiatives to support professional development and community outreach. Their focus is on empowering voices and sharing diverse perspectives, with a belief that media platforms should be used for more than just entertainment.
Speaking about the launch, Dr. Remi Jones, CEO of Remi TV Nation, said: “I believe it is our responsibility to use our media platforms not only for entertainment but also for empowerment and education. Our community’s growth and development depend on the uplifting of voices and the sharing of diverse perspectives. That’s why I started Remi TV Nation, to use media as a tool for positive change and to make a difference in our community.”
Remi TV Nation is also providing practical support to the community, with plans to place 300 NARCAN® rescue kits in areas of Rhode Island with high narcan activity. NARCAN® is a potentially lifesaving medication designed to help reverse the effects of an opioid overdose in minutes. Having a NARCAN® rescue kit nearby can make all the difference.
