Today on Flashpoints, we feature an interview with the founder of the organization Homies Unidos, Alex Sanchez,  who addresses the issue of Salvadoran gangs and how they have been held up as a symbol by the Trump administration to justify the criminalization of migrants and asylum seekers coming to the United States. Then we speak with Karina Moreno from the Latino Studies Association conference in Washington DC where academics and activists are sharing views and strategizing issues such as Temporary Protected Status (TPS) and immigrant family separations. Last we cover a recent attempt to gut a strong Net Neutrality bill in the California legislature and the surprise outcome that actually pushed back against corporate influence over policy in the State.

  • Musicians!!

    We're searching for great new music produced by independent musicians and members of our global audience, so that we can be as non-corporate and copyright-free as possible. All genres -- from blues to electronica to world beats -- welcome!

    We like smart, political and well-produced music -- and are especially in search of possible new theme instrumentals. Please send it to Flashpoints, c/o KPFA, 1929 Martin Luther King Jr. Way, Berkeley, CA 94704, or email your Mp3s at with full descriptions and credits.
