  • Strength Thru Unity

    Strength Thru Unity will be a virtual discussion to advance Asian and Latino American unity. We will discuss our common ground, shared history, values, and culture as we are being disproportionately affected by the COVID 19 pandemic.

  • The Mass Poor People's Assembly & Moral March on Washington is Going Digital!

    Before the COVID-19 pandemic, almost 700 people were dying every day in the U.S. because of the crisis of poverty. And because of this nation’s high tolerance for death, as long as those who are dying are poor and people of color, the national response to this pandemic has only further exposed the country’s distorted morality.

    — The Poor People's Campaign

  • Introducing the CalMatters College Journalism Network

    More than 3 million students. Hundreds of campuses. A state higher education budget of $36 billion. As we’ve heard so often lately, California is a nation-state, and its system of colleges and universities is equally gargantuan.

    — Felicia Mello

  • SUPPLIES SAVE LIVES: LOS ANGELES INITIATIVE DELIVERING UNUSED MEDICAL SUPPLIES TO FRONTLINE MEDICAL PROVIDERS

  • "Horrifying Neglect": COVID-19 Deaths in ICE Custody Spark New Calls for Mass Release of Prisoners

    Calls are growing for Immigration and Customs Enforcement to release people from detention during the pandemic, as two people have died from COVID-19 while in custody. We speak with The Intercept's Ryan Devereaux, who reported on how Carlos Ernesto Escobar Mejia, held at the Otay Mesa Detention Center, suffered horrifying neglect before he passed away. We are also joined by Erika Andiola with RAICES Action. "None of those folks — especially people who migrated seeking asylum — they did not do anything to deserve a life sentence in a detention center," Andiola notes.

  • COVID Racial Data Tracker: Ibram X. Kendi on How Better Data Reveals the True Toll of the Pandemic

    Ibram X. Kendi says early media coverage of COVID-19 as "the great equalizer" missed the racial impact of the disease. But it soon became clear "that it was Latino Americans and African Americans and Native Americans in particular who were disproportionately being infected and dying." The award-winning author and founding director of the Antiracist Research and Policy Center at American University joins us to discuss why he started the COVID Racial Data Tracker.

  • From George Floyd to Chris Cooper: Ibram X. Kendi on "Racist Terror" Facing Black People in America

    "I can't breathe" — that's what George Floyd, an unarmed African American man, repeatedly told a white Minneapolis police officer who pinned him to the ground Monday with a knee to his neck. Video of the police attack went viral. Now four officers have been fired. This comes as another video went viral of a white woman calling the cops on a Black man in New York City's Central Park and falsely accusing him of "threatening her life" after he asked her to leash her dog. We discuss these developments and more with Ibram X. Kendi, founding director of the Antiracist Research and Policy Center at American University and National Book Award–winning author of "Stamped from the Beginning: The Definitive History of Racist Ideas in America" and "How to Be an Antiracist."

From the General Manager

  • We're Trying Something New

    Community media, news, services, and journalism are all cornerstones of our democracy and are more critical than ever. Many community organizations, publications, and independent media companies will become casualties of the pandemic. Our world has changed profoundly and KPFK is adapting to it, so we can still be here for you.

    — Anyel Z Fields

  • You're Invited: Where Does KPFK Go From Here?

    Tomorrow at 7 PM, KPFK General Manager will be hosting a conversation about KPFK, its place in Southern California, and its future.

  • There Is No Replacement For An Activist State

    We are watching how our long battle in bringing a progressive vision to our democracy is finally beginning to take hold. We were here long before Bernie Sanders and the New York Times shifted the conversation from liberal to progressive thinking.
