Jello Biafra has now appeared at five HOPE conferences, bridging gaps between worlds that might otherwise never have met. He once was lead singer for a band called the Dead Kennedys (music your parents may have listened to). The band broke up while being prosecuted for allegedly distributing harmful material via one of their albums. The case was won but the Dead Kennedys couldn�t survive the expense of the trial. Jello became a spoken word artist, waking people up around the world to the wide assortment of injustices so many of us face. He knows how the media industry and the government work and he knows how they can be hacked.
