OneWorld Progressive Institute Celebrates 17 Years of Community Forums & Programs on PEG

        JUNE 4, 1996 – JUNE 9, 2013

  OneWorld Progressive Institute Celebrates 17 Years of Community Programming.


 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.  Please visit us at: to learn more. 

 Today, June 9, 2013, we aired a program titled: “Cancer Genetic, Screening, Counseling and Testing.” We have three segments of the program on YouTube:  Part 1     Part 2   Part 3

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.

What Does Dr. MLK, Jr. Mean to You?

Each month, we pose a question to the OneLISC family, and share the responses reflecting our diverse range of voices and backgrounds. To mark Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s 92nd birthday, this month’s Reflections from the Field consider his life and work and his legacy today. The reflections register anger and dismay and exhaustion, but also hope, power and a commitment to keep working, to keep exerting good, strong pressure to shape our moral universe.

These Nonprofits Give Small Businesses What They Need to Survive and Thrive

So much goes into the relationship between small businesses and the nonprofit business development organizations (BDOs) that are dedicated to supporting them and helping them grow. The three BDOs profiled here, longtime LISC partners, have gone above and beyond to help entrepreneurs survive the COVID-19 pandemic. They know that the wellbeing of small businesses means jobs preserved, goods and services are accessible to the community, and local economies have a better chance of weathering the pandemic-borne recession.
