KPFA for suspending J.R. Valrey, without providing a fair hearing.

KPFA suspending J.R. Valrey, without providing a fair hearing.: Rescind its decision to suspend JR Valrey from the Morning Mix.

    1. Petition by

      Laney Black Student Union

Mr. Valrey has made several complaints to KPFA Management about abusive conduct by some KPFA paid Station Staff members. None of the people he has complained about have been suspended. Mr. Valery pointed out the facts about Black Radio shows being systematically removed from the air, and as a result has been retaliated against. Standing up to racism at K.P.F.A. was a stance for Black media everywhere,and now Mr. Valery needs the support of the whole community. Please sign the petition and spread widely.

To:
KPFA for suspending J.R. Valrey, without providing a fair hearing.
Rescind your decision to suspend JR Valrey from the Morning Mix.

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      Thought KPFA was all about Justice. How about Justice for those who put out the news?

      JR right to due process was denied him. This is never, under any circumstances, acceptable. By denying JR his due process rights, you have gone against the core principles of KPFA. It's a disgrace!

      I didn't always agree with the point of view expressed, but I always found J.R. a thorough, careful reporter who presented cohesive and informative interviews. I miss his show. I am not in agreement with suspending him without any input from the listeners.
