The site strives to provide deep, unfiltered content, tools for self-expression and a place for an interactive community to gather online.

Some of the organizations working with FORA.tv to provide content are: “C-SPAN, the World Affairs Councils of Northern California, Dallas, Oregon, Philadelphia and Connecticut, the Commonwealth Club, Books, Inc., the Hoover Institution, Cody’s Books, the Museum of the African Diaspora, the Asia Society, the New School, the Truman National Security Project, the New America Foundation, Politics & Prose Bookstore in Washington, D.C., Tattered Cover in Denver, the Heritage Foundation, the Magnes Museum, the Cato Institute, Link TV, Chatham House in London, Cambridge University, the Transatlantic Institute in Brussels, Egmont: the Royal Institute for International Relations, Book Passage, the Long Now Foundation, Americans for Informed Democracy and the Global Philanthropy Forum,.

Many of the programs aired on the site could be used to enhance curriculum in business, technology, science & health, religion, economics, and general studies course.

Go to the site, create a free account and join the discussion, or better yet have your students create accounts and join the community….
