Arizona Town Hall is a non-profit organization that brings diverse people together to solve critical and often divisive policy issues


Welcome to Arizona Town Hall

Arizona Town Hall educates, engages, connects, and empowers people to resolve important issues through consensus, not division, using a process based on respectful dialogue that values diverse perspectives, builds relationships and fosters leadership development.

Play the video below to listen to a podcast hosted by Stu Turgel with Arizona Town Hall President Tara Jackson talking about what Arizona Town Hall is and does.


Arizona Town Hall is governed by a board of directors, representing a composite of leadership from Arizona's 15 counties and from diverse occupations and interests. Board members are elected to two-year staggered terms.

Read this article in the Arizona Republic from member and frequent Town Hall participant Talonya Adams: "Arizona Town Hall builds unity, voice and purpose."

“I would recommend the Town Hall to anyone who is interested in lively discussions and helping create solutions to changing the direction of what happens in our State. Timely discussions that ultimately reach a consensus have an impact on the general public and changes that can be made will make life better for Arizonans.”

-Melissa Avant, Regional Coordinator, First Things First, Sierra Vista
