FREE SPEECH AWARDS
KFCF gives the Free Speech Award to individuals or groups who have demonstrated their commitment to free speech by exercising their freedom of speech, even when in the minority, or when taking an unpopular or unique position on issues. This honor is given to those who take stands, takes risks, and spend considerable time and effort exercising their right to speak freely, openly, and responsibly, and for the benefit of others.
This year, it is indeed an honor to recognize “Faith in The Valley” a new faith-based grassroots community organization in California’s Central Valley of 120 congregations representing over 100,000 families in Fresno, Kern, Merced, Stanislaus, and San Joaquin Counties. Their work is led by volunteer leaders who are among the people most impacted by equity issues: low wage workers, young people, immigrants, and the formerly incarcerated.
Faith in the Valley and their community partners “believe a different, better future is possible for the Central Valley if we work together. A future in which everyone is included, treated as sacred, has a chance to thrive and live a healthy, decent life. A future in which no one is seen as “less than” or lives in fear because of the color of their skin, their legal status, or the amount of money they earn. A future where everyone has access to good jobs, clean air, clean water, alternatives to incarceration, quality healthcare, and safe neighborhoods.
Faith in the Valley has been seen and heard at government meetings, numerous rallies for immigrants, women, students, and the environment. They are on TV, in social media, in our neighborhoods, and they are talking to community leaders. They are making themselves heard. They are making a difference!

Thanks to those who GAVE BIG TO MYSTATION
We had our year end Give Big to My Station. Thanks to all who donated.
You can donate that car, truck, boat, or even a tractor to KFCF!
It’s now no longer 110 degrees outside, or worse in the garage. Now is the perfect time to clean behind the house, work on your fall/winter crops, empty out the garage, and get rid of that car you no longer need. You can face the coming months with a fresh start and a clean slate by donating your car to KFCF.
KFCF PNA Committee meeting
The KFCF Program Needs Assessment Committee, an advisory committee that reviews program proposals, on going programs and programming changes, will be meeting on Tuesday March 27 at the KFCF Offices, 1449 N Wishon Ave. at 4:15 PM. Members of the public are welcome to attend, and even join the committee, but will not be eligible until after they have attended 3 full meetings.
Join Professor Eissinger every Wednesday evening at 5pm for an hour-long discussion about the big-picture issues and how to mount an effective, purposeful, and lasting resistance to racism, bigotry, and misogyny. In the new era of the so-called Alt-Right (white supremacists & neo-Nazis), every voice matters.
