Interim Pacifica National Board Meeting
NYC, January 11, 12, 13

DAILY REPORTS | The Pacifica struggle timeline

This upcoming weekend of meetings may turn out to be one of the most important events in the history of the Pacifica foundation. It is of critical importance that the listeners to be present in massive numbers to witness and participate in the meeting. WE, the listeners, along with various Pacifica staff are who have made things happen during this past year and at the last PNB meeting in D.C.. Now the stage is set for the introduction of listener involvement into the governance of the Pacifica Foundation. Listener involvement is crucial for the protection and survival of Pacifica as an independent, fiercely progressive, uncensored, truly community based media network.

All events are free and open to the public. Let's stay cool.
