The Coalition to Preserve Reggae Music is a charitable organization that works to preserve the art form and its traditional message of healing and unity. The mission of the coalition is to raise the bar in the creation, development, promotion and presentation of reggae, elevate the profile of its purveyors and increase opportunities to enjoy wholesome reggae. In pursuit of its mission, CPR presents music events and conducts forums and other educational events in the New York metropolitan area which raise funds for underwriting the CPR Fellowship program at the University of the West Indies to research, codify, curate and disseminate literature regarding reggae music.
CPR executive Sharon Gordon has been our guest on several occasions on WRFG 89.3 FM WWW.WRFG.ORG discussing her thought provoking, energetic and controversial forums in the New York are and other locations nationally.
