Hi my name is Schyna Pour. I am running for the local station board to represent youth in the greater Los Angeles area. Not only do we need members for the board with experience, but we also need new members with a new vision.

I have volunteered with KPFK for many years now. I have participated in fund drives, Local Station Board meetings, Outreach committee meetings, and I was also involved with the KPFK member fee waiver campaign for the disadvantaged.

I hope to bring new and innovative ideas to the KPFK board including increasing outreach to youth, diversifying programming, and alternative fundraising.

I stand by the KPFK mission statement for the “full distribution of public information; to obtain access to sources of news not commonly brought together in the same medium; and to employ such varied sources in the public presentation of accurate, objective, comprehensive news on all matters vitally affecting the community.” KPFK is the voice for the voiceless and plays a critical role in exposing matters such as poverty, incarceration, surveillance, and militarization. If voted into the Local Station Board I will commit to the mission statement and KPFKs vision of maintaining a station for the masses
