"In March of 2002, Sonali Kolhatkar, a 27 year old software engineer from Caltech, with a background in Astrophysics, decided to make a career change. She tried out for a position as host and producer for KPFK’s Morning Show, a two hour daily public affairs program. Today she hosts and produces Uprising every weekday morning. Sonali had long been an activist on the side, speaking out on issues such as women’s rights and US foreign policy in Afghanistan and is one of the founders and the co-director of Afghan Women's Mission. She was a listener of KPFK who took part in the activities of listeners to reclaim the Pacifica network. Today Sonali serves as a staff representative on the KPFK Local Station Board. She also served in 2004 on the Pacifica National Board of Directors as a staff director. Her first book about US foreign policy in Afghanistan, co-authored with her partner, Jim Ingalls, is entitled, “Bleeding Afghanistan: Washington, Warlords, and the Propaganda of Silence,” (Seven Stories, Fall 2006)."
