Thank you and congratulations First Voice Graduate Natalie Kilmer!

Congratulations Natalie Kilmer!!! And shout out to A Word From. Natalie was the only person from her group A Word From, to hang on to the Apprenticeship Program when in March of 2020 the state ordered a mandatory  shelter in place for the first time due to COVID 19.

It was at that time the KPFA also shut its doors to most of us non-essentials as we were deemed and we were all asked to work from home if we could..

Anyways needless to say that it was tough to continue life itself let alone continue a radio broadcasting training program from home. But Natalie did and she graduated in June of 2021. At that time it seemed for a moment the pandemic was lightening and we had a small gathering of 5 people where we honored Natalie for her work and for her commitment.

Congratulations on your completion of this program and we are excited for you new podcast, West Coast Water Justice!!!
