Fermi (formerly GLAST), NASAs new gamma-ray observatory, has been launched on June 11, 2008. Fermi's main detector, the Large Area Telescope (LAT), monitors the whole sky with unprecedented sensitivity and provides us with a tremendous opportunity to examine relativistic jets in active galaxies. The all-sky character of Fermi and the broadband emission characteristsics of its primary science targets has resulted in a significant increase in multiwavelength efforts and collaborations. Radio observations play a particularly important role in this framework since comparitive studies with VLBI and radio monitoring programs  yield insights as to where the gamma-rays are produced, and how jets are launched and collimated.

Here we provide a clearinghouse of information about ongoing activities in the radio, especially those that are conducted in collaboration with the Fermi/LAT Science Working Group on Blazars and Other AGN and useful public ressources.
