Radio Town Hall Tackles Media Justice

Several San Francisco East Bay area groups will hold an interactive People’s Voice Town Hall on Friday, March 21 to discuss media “empowerment through creative expression and new technology.” The meeting, to be broadcast live on KPFA-FM in Berkeley from 7-8 pm and 9-10 pm, will address the digital divide, healing as a moral, social, political and economic necessity, and Pacifica Radio’s role as a community sponsored network.

“There is an untapped power that lives within the communities who do not know media institutions such as Pacifica exist,” say the event’s sponsors. “When these voices are reached, heard and reflected back, relevancy becomes the underlying strength to build from.”
