Our Founder/President and Executive Director, Thomas Williams
The Peoples Club (TPC) was founded in May 2016 by Thomas Williams.
Driven by a sense of equality and a strong moral code, Thomas has made it a personal mission to elevate the planet with solutions that work for all people.
His life’s work has become an inspiration to many, through his kindness. Many members have been privately assisted with their mental, emotional, physical and spiritual problems by Thomas, as well as financial hardships through The Peoples Club, “hand up over a handout” charitable outreach.
Known by many for his treasured, “Tommyisms,” hammer-dropping truths and deep insights, Thomas regularly gives members common-sense questions to ponder to encourage self-responsibility, caring & sharing and need over greed.
“I am just a simple man of and with the people, with no connections to anyone but the people themselves. All I ask in return is, for people to be a better version of themselves tomorrow, than today.”
“Be the truth, be the change, as you are your own savior.” -Thomas Williams
