At a solidarity event for the Oakland Parker Elementary school occupation, Lisa Milos who is a CWA-UPTE member and also a KPFA Local Station Board Delegate spoke out in support of the occupation and also about the fight at KPFA and Pacifica and the attempted shutdown of New York's WBAI and the corporatization of Pacifica. The majority of the KPFA LSB who call themselves "The Protectors" are in support
of an appeal by KPFA board member and PNB member Donald Goldmacher to the FCC to take over the license of New York's WBAI from the members and Pacifica. The LSB and manager Quincy McCoy also refused to support KPFA host and journalist Frank Sterling who faced a police attack and criminal charges could not be supported because according to McCoy, KPFA is not a "political party". McCoy was also personally involved in the illegal shutdown of WBAI and sent $80,000 of KPFA funds to lawyers supporting the shutdown and did this without informing the Local Station Board.

This event took place on May 28, 2022.

KPFA management with the support of the majority of the Local Station Board have unilaterally shutdown programs and refused to defend KPFA journalist and activist Frank Sterling. The board opposed a resolution calling on the Contra Costa DA to drop the criminal charges against him by the Antioch police and the general manager Quincy McCoy said that KFPA couldn't take a position because KPFA wasn't a political party. They also supported a resolution of support for Julian Assange and for him to be freed.
