OneWorld Progressive Institute Celebrates 17 Years of Community Programming.
17 YEARS OF PRESENTING COMMUNITY FORUMS AND EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS FOR THE GREATER NEW HAVEN COMMUNITY.
Our first program aired on June 4, 1996 as "LOOKING INTO THE 21ST CENTURY."
This journey started June 4, 1996 when I presented my first television program on Citizens Television on State Street in New Haven. The program was called “Looking Into the 21st Century”. The topic of that program was: “Job Skills for the 21st Century.” Guests were business school directors, leading employers, and human resource managers. That was the last program I produced for "Let's Talk About Jobs," a group I was assisting as a volunteer.
The first program, the one I conceived on behalf of the community, was: “Positive Community Profiles,” featuring three local community activists and leaders. They were: Mrs. Anne Calabresi (the co-founder of Leadership, Education and Athletics in Partnership (LEAP) and the international Festival of Arts and Ideas); Mrs. Elsie Cofield (the founder of AIDS Interfaith), and 10th District State Senator Toni Harp.
Today, 17 years later, the work continues. The challenges are greater and so are the needs in our community. More than ever we NEED a community of builders and problem-solvers. We NEED people who work to unite rather than tear asunder.
During the Month of June we will reprise some of the issues we addressed as a community in 1996. Back then people came to help, to pull together programs that would benefit the community. We are grateful to all those who have provided various forms of assistance and support for our efforts. We are particularly appreciative of those who recognize the value of our contributions.

Today, June 9, 2013, we aired a program titled: “Cancer Genetic, Screening, Counseling and Testing.” We have three segments of the program on YouTube: http://youtu.be/UDNqhvWf0aM Part 1

The topic is very current, but we recorded it long before Ms. Jolie told the public about her personal decisions. We work at finding and bringing to the community reliable information on those issues we believe are relevant, informative and empower our viewers.
Our Programs are on AT&T Uverse (99 drop-down menu), Charter Channel 21, Comcast Channels 10, 15, 18, 26 & 34, and on Cox 15. For those who live in Branford, No. Branford, East Haven and No. Haven, OneWorld programs air multiple times weekly. Check the station's program schedule.
