Why a fundraiser for a KPFA volunteer producer?
Nadra Foster, a KPFA volunteer producer and host of 12 years duration, was roughly arrested at the studios of KPFA Radio, by the Berkeley Police Department, on August 20th, 2008, after KPFA management called the police to enforce a nebulous “banning” imposed on the long-time volunteer in a dispute over copy machine usage.
During the arrest, Foster was restrained, and suffered a severe wrist sprain and bruising. The Alameda County DA filed multiple charges and she is still facing 5 charges including trespassing, resisting arrest and multiple charges of assault on a law officer. Proceeds from the benefit will be used to pay attorney’s fees for the young single mother.
