One thought on “TV – People’s Environmental News

  1. April Peebler

    In a time where it feels as though we are fighting against all odds, including mainstream media, Barbara McVeigh’s dedication to ensuring that oppressed or marginalized voices are heard is refreshing, hopeful and community building. We were so happy to have been invited on Barbara’s radio talk show and People’s Environmental News TV show in to share the youth perspective regarding what is happening to the planet and how it has and will continue to affect future generations. Thank you Barbara for opening doors in discussions, boldly and courageously. With gratitude, April Peebler, Executive Director, Heirs To Our Oceans.
