KPFA Community Input Meeting


FullSizeRender-62The KPFA Community Advisory Board (CAB) sponsored a community input meeting on Saturday, March 26.  It was well attended, with about 55 people showing up.  The meeting started with CAB member Rahman Jamaal outlining the meeting format.

People were given 30 seconds to say who they are, and why they were interested in KPFA.  A broad range of interests were represented, including interests in the news, education, culture, children’s rights, homelessness, gentrification and more.



People then came together in smaller break-out groups, to discuss their areas of interests, and how to improve KPFA.

The break-out groups included News and public affairs programming; Drama and literature  programming; Resisting privatization in public education; Pacifica finances and governance; Pro-corporate political party bias at KPFA; 80 year history of morning radio; and Social Justice including black lives matter, gentrification.


After meeting in the break-out groups, people came back together to report on what was discussed and provide ideas for the next steps needed.


The Pacifica group agreed to try to meet with the new CFO to get more information to try make some headway on the finances. Other groups created a task forces to continue to meet and work for solutions.
