A little more conversation, a little more action

The American Forum is a place for conversation around the topics that concern America's young people.

Every Wednesday at 7 P.M. EST, students are invited to participate in weekly chats on Twitter on a variety of issues. Speak your mind and be heard, we want to hear your thoughts and ideas. You can also participate in our discussion boards and via our Facebook page.

The American Forum is hosted at The American University School of Communication in Washington, D.C. American Forum events are held regularly on campus, where key decision makers and experts are brought together with students in a open conversation. People from around the nation watch live online and participate in these dialogues, which are also broadcast by partnering organizations like CSPAN-TV and NPR via American University's member station WAMU.
