What the KPFA LSB elections signal about the direction of the Station
Our Bay Area’s Pacifica Foundation radio station KPFA 94.1 FM is moving away from it’s radical roots. Burdened with intramural verbal aggression at its Local Station, Board meetings and lacking equal air time for alternative local politics, it prefers to be comfortable riding the river that is the two political party system.
KPFA, our listener-funded. community radio, is attempting to create a station that will appeal to only a neoliberal big donor base We Oakland Greens believe that the opposite would be the financial savior, namely, soliciting small donations from the many who are actually living the struggles that KPFA claims it champions.
This fundraiser for the Oakland Greens will be our regular town hall style format. After a fifteen-minute presentation on the future of KPFA and community powered media, we then will take your moderated questions.
The Oakland Greens invite you to our 2021 virtual fundraiser with author, blogger, and free media systems advocate Tracy Rosenburg.
