I am Aldane Walters and happy to be nominated for KPFA’s Local Station Board.
I hope to bring my knowledge of media journalism to help KPFA radio and Pacifica to expand as powerful resources for people locally, nationally and internationally.
I have been writing professionally since I was in high school and later freelanced for publications in Jamaica. I am now a student in the Bay Area and am active in the Liberated Lens Collective where I collaborate with others on progressive independent media projects.
Through my training I have learned production techniques, creative development of story ideas, identifying new, reliable sources for accurate research and marketing tools. I am interested in sharing these skills and innovative ways to expand technology options for the network in the digital age.
In alignment with Pacifica’s mission, I want to help share approaches for analyzing journalistic work through the lenses of race, class, gender, generation and geography. This includes helping to identify and address blindspots in our media communities, considering how segments of the public perceive the information we put out and implementing strategies to help overcome biases.
Please VOTE for me Aldane Walters and UNITED candidates
