Time: 12-4pm

Who are the candidates for the election for the KPFA Local Station Board and where do they stand on what KPFA should
be doing on labor coverage and making KPFA a real voice for working people in the Bay Area and Pacifica nationally?
Should KPFA should be playing a major role in covering the labor movement and working class struggles and what happened
to the KPFA Labor Collective? Why is there no regular weekly one hour labor show at KPFA when there are regular
one hour labor shows on WBAI in New York, KPFK in Los Angeles and KPFT in Houston? These are some of the issues that will be discussed at this labor forum
on what's happening at KFPA and Pacifica and how it can be made a beacon for working people.
The slate that is supporting a regular labor program and KFPA and a Labor Department at KFPA is

A quick look at this news item might make people think that this is a Voices for Justice event .
IT IS NOT !! This forum is sponsored by the three Labor organizations listed and the KPFA election committee. The VFJ slate are only four of twenty seven candidates for the board .
They can and doubt will present their views and their analysis of the situation at KPFA and Pacifica.
But those questions that they list in this item are those of the VFJ and not neccessarily that of the other candidates of the two other much larger slates or the three independents.
We are 100% volunteer and depend on your participation to sustain our efforts!
