Radio KPFK is not for sale

Kelly Flores

I am Kelly Flores running for the LSB for the second time, with the Grassroots Community Radio Coalition. I want to help in whatever ways I can to keep KPFK for the community it serves and promote programming that reflects the voices of the people, especially communities of color in the struggle. I want to promote culturally relevant and responsive, liberatory and global perspectives that address the issues our communities face. We need better education and more creative space on air and continue to bring listeners back, and keep listeners connected. That is what public radio is for- one that is truly run by the people and for the people–and one that brings in the most marginalized and oppressed in our communities; and one that uplifts their voices and the beautiful music, poetry and art being created. KPFK should continue to be the station that holds that space and unites us.

Over the past several years so many changes have negatively impacted the station and I want to help change that. We have financial constraints and we need to find better and more creative ways to fundraise, increase membership, and listener support. I want to help do this
