Town Hall: A WTVP Community Event

Since its inception, WTVP has given residents of central Illinois the opportunity to exchange ideas and explore critical issues utilizing the Town Hall concept. Experts on topics ranging from HIV/AIDS to Drugs and Violence to Making Schools Work have gathered with interested members of the communities in the WTVP studios to discuss ways to improve community relations and offer solutions to problems facing local citizens. The forums allow community members to share thoughts and become part of the process of finding ways to overcome obstacles and make a positive impact. WTVP provides information that is key to the successful resolution of difficult issues.

You will find the WTVP Town Hall topics and schedule below.
