As New York wrestles with the distinction of being the epicenter of COVID-19 in America, our team is readying the next installment of BRIC TV’s Emmy Award Winning #BHeard Town Hall series “The Foreseeable Future” on Wednesday May 20th.

Hear from thought leaders in education, healthcare, infrastructure, and labor as they provide multiple points of entry for Brooklynites to engage in universal challenges with practical applications for how we live right now while preparing for the future. The program will engage our community in Brooklyn and futurists from across the country, digitally.
