Impact Network Family and Friends,
The 2016 Presidential Race has turned into one of the most controversial and memorable races to the White House in our lifetime. This race to become the next President of the United States of America is at a critical juncture where real clear policies, platforms and agendas need to be communicated.
On September 3, 2016 the Republican Candidate Donald J. Trump will be interviewed by myself Bishop Wayne T. Jackson, President, Impact Network, on the issues that directly affect the heart of many areas within the African American community. This interview will premier during an exclusive Impact Network special presentation called, “Voice of the People.”
Similar to media outlets around the country, Impact Network sent a formal letter inviting the Democratic and Republication candidate an opportunity to be interviewed. Mr. Trump will be allowed to outline his policies followed by a frank on-air conversation with Bishop Jackson. We hope that Candidate Hillary Clinton will accept our offer so we can give her the same opportunity. During this televised event we will address real issues facing our communities such as law and order, police and black citizens, black lives matter, racism in 2016, economic empowerment, education, and incarceration just to name a few.
This interview is NOT a rally or an endorsement for Mr. Trump. This is an opportunity as a community to get answers to questions that seriously impact our daily lives and future. Our community is diverse and not all issues relate to all black people, but our goal is to address those issues which our most pressing to parts of our community in these times. As the only African American Christian Television Network, we believe that both candidates understand the importance of reaching our viewers.
We hope this invitation to both candidates will result in an opportunity to get clarity on some of the issues that have a particular impact on our community. The 2016 Presidential election is a determining factor on the direction of our country and we want to make sure we are providing an opportunity for an informed electorate to make the best decision possible. Please pray for us as we endeavor to do our best to make heard the voice for the people.
Bishop Wayne T. Jackson
President of the Impact Television Network
