About Town Square
Town Square is a Seattle Channel series dedicated to connecting people and ideas. With lectures, debates, and forums recorded around the city at places such as Town Hall, the Seattle Public Library, and the Central District Forum of Arts and Ideas, Town Square brings interesting and provocative conversations to cable TV and the web.
As the details of our lives become more and more digitized, privacy concerns loom large. This volunteer, grassroots, community forum seeks to raise awareness regarding digital privacy concerns, especially for marginalized and underrepresented populations. The forum addresses challenges that vulnerable communities face in navigating their privacy rights including online addiction, cyber-bullying, identity, senior fraud, and greater demands for personal data access.
