TPC Featured Program


TPC is pleased to present a series of programs by Fusion Films featuring Rev Dr. William J. Barber, II. This week’s program airs at 8 pm on Monday, November 4 and 10 am on Saturday, November 9.
 

This week, TPC is preempting Dr. Barber’s speech in order to provide a rebroadcast of Democracy Now’s 2019 Presidential Forum On Environmental Justice.
 
This first-ever Forum on Environmental Justice was held on November 8, 2019 at South Carolina State University. Presidential candidates shared their visions and policies for a more sustainable future and its effects on underserved communities. Advocacy organizations, such as the National Black Caucus of State Legislators (NBCSL), along with two dozen other nation/local organizations, hosted the forum.
