Biography

Jenka joined KBOO Community Radio in 2007, after travelling around the world as an Indymedia organizer, and helping coordinate relief efforts in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina. She trained hundreds of volunteers in the news production process. She also has developed and implemented media training programs in Palestine for the International Middle East Media Center (imemc.org).

In 2010, Soderberg was selected as a Knight Fellow in Journalism at Stanford University, where she spent the year developing a tool for mobile news submission and verification. Her focus continues to be on the dismantling of the capitalist structures that hold society in a state of continuous war, and empowering communities to take action for their own self-determination.
