As 2016 ends, KBOO is getting ready. We're planning for a transformative year, a time when our collective power is amplified as an act of resistance. We're empowering more community members to make media than ever before. We're covering news and culture in a way commercial media neglects.

Everyone at KBOO thanks you for your support!

On the weekend of the inauguration, we're conducting a Thank-A-Thon. We'll be calling KBOO members (just the ones that told us it'd be ok to call) and thanking them for their support. If you're not sure what to do that weekend, join us at the KBOO studios to show gratitude to fellow believers in a more just, inclusive, and participatory media.

A Moment of Possibility

Tuesdays, January 3rd, 10th, 17th + 31st || 6:00-7:30 pm || Wayfinding Academy (8010 N Charleston Ave.)

Trump's campaign and election revealed the core tensions in our dominant culture:  gender + race hatreds, class privilege, class war and corporate impunity. In this course, taught by Christine Dupres (Cowlitz/Cree) Ph.D., we will make connections between hate ideologies and the shifting landscape of the U.S. and politics in order to articulate, assemble, and act. Let's turn our confusion into clarity, and our collective pain into collective action.
