KFAI Community Advisory Board

Our station relies on a Community Advisory Board to stay connected with the people it serves, especially those ignored or misrepresented by mainstream media. Our mission is to increase understanding between peoples and communities, while fostering the values of democracy and social justice. Your ideas and inspiration can help KFAI live up to its mission.  

The Community Advisory Board reports to the Board of Directors and the staff. 

KFAI's Community Advisory Board convened in early December 2013. Board of Directors member Alan Carlson serves as a liaison between fellow directors and the Community Advisory Board. You can reach Alan by email with any questions about KFAI's Community Advisory Board. A full listing of Community Advisory Board members is below.
