Blase Bonpane and Doran Barons
It's with a heavy heart that we announce Blase Bonpane former host of World Focus and Doran Barons host and producer of Digital Village both passed away last weekend.
These two gentlemen have contributed so much of their time serving KPFK and its listeners. We will be honoring them both on our community tree for their service and the lives they have both touched. I am happy we honored Blase when he was alive last year. Here is a video from that event.

"We can be whatever we have the courage to see."

It's called "A Message from the Future with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez." The film was co-written by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez herself, along with Avi Lewis, the co-founder of The Leap. We speak with Avi Lewis and award-winning artist Molly Crabapple about the power of art to create social change.
"A Message from the Future with AOC": New Film Imagines World Transformed by the Green New Deal
As the push for the Green New Deal builds momentum in the United States, The Intercept has released a short illustrated video imagining a future shaped by the progressive environmental movement. It's titled "A Message from the Future with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez." The New York congressmember narrates the film to envision an America that has been transformed by the Green New Deal policies, including a just transition of jobs, Medicare for all, and a total overhaul of the country's energy system. The result is a vision of radical hope and transformation. The film features stunning artwork by award-winning illustrator Molly Crabapple. It is presented by The Intercept and Naomi Klein, co-written by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Avi Lewis, and co-directed by Kim Boekbinder and Jim Batt.
