Last updated on January 6, 2014

P.C. is an author of 3 books. He did a book reading at the Wisconsin Book Festival in 2012. P.C. is passionate about educating people about discrimination. To give you more of a sense of who P.C. is, here is an excerpt from his latest book.

Introduction
In “Cold Blooded and Damn Right Dirty III,” PC expands on ideas that he introduced in his previous editions:
All of us need to be respected. All of us need to be heard.
PC tells some tough, painful stories of his part. Throughout this work, P.C. tells a message of hope, freedom and equality – standing up for the rights of those our society diagnoses and labels.
PC even challenges those of us who consider ourselves advocates. How does our language of labels, although intended to be respectful, affect the way we see the people with whom we work?
PC has a strong, unyielding message.
