    This special event will not only honor and pay tribute to our HEROES OF HOPE, but it will also focus on raising awareness and funding needed for the sustainability of KPFK and Pacifica in order to realize its mission for providing outlets for the creative skills and energies of the community and acting as a catalyst in addressing social and political tensions through broadcast media.

    ED ASNER: Ed Asner is a television legend, well known for his role as Lou Grant on The Mary Tyler Moore Show and subsequent spin-off Lou Grant. He is the winner of seven acting Emmy Awards, and has been nominated a total of twenty times. Asner also made a name for himself as a trade unionist and a political activist. He served two terms as president of the Screen Actors Guild, from 1981-1985, during which he was an outspoken critic of former SAG President Ronald Reagan, then the US president, for his Central American policy. Eds book, The Grouchy Historian:
    An Old-Time Lefty Defends Our Constitution Against Right-Wing Hypocrites and Nutjobs with Ed Weinberger was released October 2017. 

    DOLORES HUERTA: Dolores Huerta is an activist and labor leader who co-founded what would become the United Farm Workers. Dolores has worked to improve social and economic conditions for farm workers and to fight discrimination. To further her cause, she created the Agricultural Workers Association (AWA) in 1960 and co-founded what would become the United Farm Workers (UFW). Huerta stepped down from the UFW in 1999, but she continues her efforts to improve the lives of workers, immigrants and women. The documentary film Dolores was released in 2017 to excellent reviews. Dolores Huerta is among the most important, yet least known, activists in American history. An equal partner in co-founding the first farm workers unions with Cesar Chavez, her enormous contributions have gone largely unrecognized. Dolores tirelessly led the fight for racial and labor justice alongside Chavez, becoming one of the most defiant feminists of the twentieth centuryand she continues the fight to this day, at 87. With intimate and unprecedented access to this intensely private mother to eleven, the film reveals the raw, personal stakes involved in committing ones life to social change. Directed by Peter Bratt.  

    JOHN PAUL DEJORIA:  John Paul DeJoria is a first-generation American turned entrepreneur, philanthropist and pillar of the business community. He has struggled against the odds not only to achieve success, but to share his success with others, always living his motto: "Success unshared is failure."
    In 2011, John Paul established JP's Peace, Love & Happiness Foundation as a hub for his charitable investments, which support the core values of his companies: sustainability, social responsibility and animal-friendliness. The documentary film  Good Fortune based on DeJoria's life
