National Issues Forums Public Voice 2006 Program Now Available Online

The National Issues Forums (NIF) website (www.nifi.org) now has information (including a video clip to watch) about this year’s “A Public Voice 2006”—an annually produced one-hour public affairs television program that examines how well the United States public is tackling an important public issue. The program for 2006 is titled: “People and Politics: Facing Democracy’s Challenge” and includes glimpses inside some of the National Issues Forums around the country where people have held deliberative discussions using the NIF issue book “Democracy’s Challenge: Reclaiming the Public’s Role.” The television program also features a panel of office holders, experts, and members of the media as they view and discuss excerpts from forums held earlier this year. You can watch a clip from this new program and find more information about the “A Public Voice” series, including a current listing of public television stations around the country that have made commitments to air this year’s “A Public Voice 2006.” Links to all this information and to a page that will let you watch a clip from this year’s program (or from last year’s program) can be found in the lower left hand side of the NIF homepage. To order a copy of this video, contact Ruffolo at ecruffolo@ec-ruffolo.com, call 800-600-4060, or FAX: 937-435-7367.
