The Village Square of Tallahassee

Fridays at 7:00 pm ET as Scheduled

The Village Square is a nervy bunch of liberals and conservatives who believe that disagreement and dialogue make for a good conversation, a good country (and a good time).

It is a non-partisan public educational forum on matters of local, state and national importance dedicated to maintaining factual accuracy in civic and political debate by growing civil dialog on divisive issues, and recalling the history and principles at the foundation of our democracy.

To the Village Square, Inc. is a not-for-profit corporation incorporated in the State of Florida and organized under Chapter 617 of the laws of the State of Florida and Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.

Village Square: Our Town

Feb 24, 2012

“Our Town” Forum featuring Tallahassee and Leon County commissioners.

Relations between the Capital City’s local governments haven’t always been cordial.  But in this Village Square forum, majorities from both the Tallahassee City and Leon County commissions sit down together to talk about what they’ve been up to and how what they do actually has an impact on the lives of average citizens.  They also field some pretty pointed questions from a packed house at St. John’s Episcopal Church.
