About Seattle Speaks
Seattle Channel, Town Hall and CityClub came together to create Seattle Speaks -- a unique, multi-media town hall for the 21st century to create compelling television on surrounding challenging and important issues in Seattle.
Seattle Speaks takes place twice a year: in the spring and fall. Mark your calendars for the next Seattle Speaks live community conversation 7 p.m., Wednesday, Sept. 30 at Town Hall. Doors open at 6 p.m.
Privacy. It's an increasingly important topic in our digital world. But does releasing certain government-held data harm or help the public? While surveillance and information technologies have developed rapidly, privacy laws have not kept pace. City of Seattle leaders are pursuing a new privacy initiative that could impact everything from 911 calls to utility bills to recordings from police-worn body cameras. Host Brian Callanan moderates a live, televised community forum at Town Hall with privacy advocates, government, public-safety and technology leaders. Seattle Speaks is presented in partnership with Seattle CityClub and Town Hall.
